BlankOn 2 (Konde) Released

BlankOn 2 (Konde) is released today. BlankOn 2 is a Linux distribution that is created with a collaboration between Yayasan Penggerak Linux Indonesia (YPLI) and Ubuntu Indonesia LoCo Team. BlankOn 2 is developed to fulfill the Indonesian Linux users.

With the simplicity and the robustness of Ubuntu, BlankOn 2 is developed using Gutsy Gibbon as the base Linux distribution. So BlankOn 2 is an Ubuntu derivative distribution.

BlankOn 2 is using Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian Language) as the main language and we hope we could use this distro to socialize the use of computer terms in Indonesian Language.

BlankOn 2 is also a medium of education for Indonesian developer for online collaboration and learn how to develop a free/open source software. The developer of BlankOn 2 was communicating using IRC in #blankon in irc.freenode.net, mailing list and using Launchpad.

Meet With Ubuntu-ID Jogjakarta

Right now I’m in Jogjakarta for some office works. Before I go to Jogjakarta, I already contacted Alvonsius telling him that I’m going to Jogjakarta for one night. Soon as I arrived, I called him so I could meet with some Ubuntu users in this town. Alvon came to The Saphir Jogjakarta Hotel where I stay for this night. He came with 6 other Ubuntu users. We talk a lot about Ubuntu Indonesia LoCo Team and ask them how was the Gutsy Release Party in Jogjakarta.

Gutsy Release Party Jakarta

Today I attend Gutsy Release Party in Jakarta which took place in Papa Rons Pizza Warung Buncit. There are about 50 people that attend the party. I did a presentation about Ubuntu Indonesia LoCo Team while Wisu gave presentation about new features in Gutsy Gibbon.

There are also some games for door prizes. The prizes are some sets of Ubuntu 7.10 DVD Repository and some Ubuntu-ID tshirts. Oh, and the foods are delicious :D

Some of the participants are Miss Irene from Intel Indonesia, Mr. Rama Yurindra from Zend Indonesia, Mr. Bambang from Biskom Magazine, Mr. Andy Apdhani as an Ubuntu Member, Mr. Adin and Mr. Jan Peter from kambing.ui.edu and many more.

This party won’t be a success without the work of the coordinator of Gutsy Release Party Jakarta, Mr. Wisu Suntoyo and team, and BizNet as a sponsor for this party. So I would like to thank them for making this party rocks! Also for all the participant who willing to spend their time to party with us.
