Ubuntu

This is exciting but also may take a few days to “unpack” all the boxes and work out the kinks. Please be patient with us and if find something that needs to be fixed please let the team know by:

* IRC Channel #ubuntu-news on irc.freenode.net
* Team Mailing list, ubuntu-news-team@gmail.com
* Forums: http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=122
* Editor Email: editor.ubuntu.news@gmail.com

As most of you who follow the Fridge know, Ubuntu has been given a face-lift. There is a cool new theme with new colors, a lighter feel, and just all around an upbeat tone to all the official Ubuntu related sites. Check out ubuntu.com and canonical.com to see the new look if you haven’t done so already.

The news team for the last couple of years (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Fridge/Rejuvenate) has been trying to get The Fridge moved from Drupal to Wordpress and that effort is almost complete now.
