Our Next Meeting: Wednesday 16th May 2018 Windows 10 Update

In the next meeting we will look at and discuss the changes and features in the last two Windows 10 updates 1709 (Creators Fall) and 1803 (April 2018 Update) which started rolling out on the 8th May after being delayed. We will look at some issues which have been reported as well as possibly attempt a clean install during the meeting.


Our Next Meeting: Wednesday 18th April - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - Gareth

This is a change to our previously published programme and following the Committee meeting on 28th March we have moved the AGM to June 20th this year.

At our next meeting we'll take a look at the upcoming Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Long Term Support) release which will be released the week after our meeting, on April 26th, and will be supported for 5 years.

We'll take a look at new features since the last LTS in April 2016 and the last 17.10 development release last October, both for the desktop and under the hood.



Just a reminder that the next meeting in June will be our AGM.
