2005-02-22 but it will take a while
"it may take up to several weeks from that date for some packages to leave the factory and the package could spend several weeks in transit to some locations. We can not pinpoint the mailing date of individual packages."
ps:yah alex got the cd's before me , he is lucky ;-)
Update : package is here - all 30 cd's
Update : thanks to the Romanian Postal Office that i saw the cd's and they refused to give me my ubuntu cd's :-(
something related to my id card
Update: Well they gave me the cd's - finally (already i'm left without all 20 x86-32 cd's!)

Jakob Eriksson wanted to know if anyone had used Wine's DLL's on Windows:
Has anybody else thought of using DLLs (like ReactOS' dlls) as a compatibility layer to different Windows versions? I.e. when you distribute your Windows app, you also throw in a bunch of DLLs that implement lots of functionality you aren't sure exists on your target otherwise. (Windows 2003 functionality on Windows XP, 2000 and NT for instance.)
It would be a way to avoid upgrading Windows. This would be good for developers, users and the Open Source community. The longer it takes for Microsoft to shove out a new version of their OS, the more time Open Source has to infiltrate. :-)

"Now, let's move on to PHP. From a purely linguistic perspective, PHP is a worse language than Perl: http://tnx.nl/php. BUT from an application perspective, it outdoes Perl. I did not say from a modular/functionality perspective, but from the application perspective."

"I have read that 90 percent of the World Wide Web is pointers to other places on the Web, and only 10 percent is real useful or interesting stuff. I haven't figured out what my 10 percent will be yet, but it will probably have to do with Linux or juggling."
