Happy 15th birthday, Debian!

6 Hong Kong users of Debian/GNU and its derivatives celebrated 15th birthday of Debian/GNU project at a upstair cafe shop in Mongkok with free wifi internet. It is a wonderful night for us to meet up, and we made a a new friend – Mike, thanks for your participate and see you in future events.

We got 1 problem and 1 error tonight but it doesn’t affect our party. Our booking record at original cafe venue is eventually lost (Would it cancelled in phone by someone ???), finally the party was moved to another cafe in same building, and we posted a memo at the front door of original cafe venue for the floor number of new & final cafe venue. And an error was found by spacehunt that the Debian/GNU logo on the top of the birthday cake was mirrored by baker.

The birthday cake is cut by one of Hong Kong Debian developers – spacehunt.

Besides drinking, eating and cake cutting, we brought few Ubuntu netbooks (and my notebook) to chat about applications running at GNOME on Ubuntu mobile (in harddisk and in USB thumb), some open-source affairs and news. Henry installed and showed Debian with GDM login and virtual keyboard on his Neo FreeRunner.

And we watched Olympics beijing man basketball (China vs Germary) on a TV set and 1st match in new season 08/09 of England Premier League (Arsenal vs WBA) on another one.
