Our One Year Anniversary

This month marks's one year anniversary. 12 months ago we started the site and pre-ordered our Dell Mini 9s. Since then we have covered 2 Ubuntu releases (gearing up for the 3rd), built up a Google Group help forum, written over 90 articles and watched as the community grew even after Dell discontinued the Mini 9 on May 29, 2009.

The site has had over:
- 248,000 unique visitors
- 405,000 visits to the site
- 866,000 page views
- From all over the world: readers in the Unites States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Australia, Japan, Brazil and other equally awesome countries. Hopefully for my foreign readers my writing skills have gotten better over the year.

I started blogging about Ubuntu 3 years ago, originally about Ubuntu on Dell Inspiron 1501, and never thought my blogs would become as popular as they have. This coming year is going to be big for the blog. I have plans for reporting more Ubuntu news, highlighting more software, write more upgrading guides, upgrading the Flickr account so we can link to high resolution screenshots, opening up the site to Dell Mini 10v and Vostro A90 users, and writing about other Ubuntu derivatives. The site and Google group is going to change a bit and we'll be adding some new staff.

We are also having a big donation drive to raise enough money to buy new hardware (I'd like to get a Dell Mini 10v), better picture hosting and some equipment. I'm hosting the donation drive through If you can spare some green feel free to donate via the widget below.

Thanks for your support, contributions, feedback and donations!
