Ubuntu mirror in Mauritius

Operating system updates when fast and smooth, it is always a pleasure to see. No one ever wants a slow machine because updates are hogging resources. Thanks to cloud.mu who sponsored a server and bandwidth, we now have an Ubuntu mirror in Mauritius.

A local mirror for openSUSE users in Mauritius 🥳

Linux User Group of Mauritius meets Luboš Kocman

We did not have physical meetups for perhaps longer than a year. So, when Luboš told me that he is visiting Mauritius and will be glad to meet local openSUSE, Linux & FOSS people, I was thrilled. Not to mention he'd bring some openSUSE goodies. 😊 I called up LUGM friends to make this happen.
