A little nervous (???)

Here wizards, magicians, sorcerers and everybody can rest a bit and talk about anything they like.

Just remember to respect the rules.

A little nervous (???)

Don't you have that strange kind of feeling?

Something quite indefinite, something twinkling, something feeling woolly,
something magic, the last days before the first official is going to be released.

As quiet as it looks like right now, as hard the team is working to bring forth
a brilliant start of Mageia.

June 1st will be a day of fresh bubbles released from the cauldron.

Please tell about your expectations, your plans, change of distribution, or whatever that interests you for Mageia.
Don't let it be just a technical thing, let it be a magical and loving thing

And, of course, wisdom, strength and lots of fun for those being involved, into making Mageia a brilliant new distribution.

Yes, the whole power supply of the Mageia servers also is nervous :(

No need to be nervous. I think Mageia is going to be the best distro ever. No, I don't think, I know. :D

I'm not nervous about the quality of the distribution. We know it is good. Basta! :)

What we do not know is the kind of welcome it will receive outside our small circle of friends here. What we do not know is whether we will meet our own goals: get the attention of enough contributors to go on, putting our own ideas to reality, developping a distribution which will not be yet another forgotten episode in a couple of years from now, releasing something other people may be able to build their business on, and other plans.

As long as the enthusiasm remains strong as it has done to get to this point then I can see no problems to Mageia becoming a major player.
Long may the Mageia community reign.

Nervous? No. I got nervous, when servers went down tonight, otherwise I don't have the time for being nervous...

About the coming release. I know it is good (even if some things are still missing) and I do hope, it will be a success and all of us will find usable compromisses in the discussions about our strategy, that will come after Mga1.

Mageia will be a success.
Yeah - I said it ...

Now after my words of profound wisdom, I'm going back to procrastinating.

I've been using the RC and it does pretty much all I want and need for leisure and work, so I don't expect the final version to be less than magnificent.

So, I'm just counting the last days to download the final version and enjoy the Linux distro that will bring some vastly needed magic into this world.

I, for my part, welcome Mageia and congratulate the developers, contributors, and this simply wonderful community.

By the way, although it's not much, I managed to modify the icon of the trash and replaced it by an empty/full cauldron. I think it looks cool for visual identity. If someone is interested, the 128X128 (I think) images can be retrieved from here: http://mandrivachronicles.blogspot.com/2011/05/mageia-1-rc1-as-seen-by-two-year.html
