“Your fair discourse hath been as sugar, Making the hard way sweet and delectable.”

As you may have noticed on Twitter, Mastodon, IRC, our mailing lists, and this website, we have now launched a forum using the incredibly popular open source Discourse software. We join Ubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, Ubuntu Budgie, LXQt, Phabricator, and others that share this powerful tool for communication with us.

Lubuntu Discourse

This forum is a general meeting point for any topic, but most notably (at this point) support and development. It will not supercede other forms of communication like the mailing lists, but instead will complement them. While we’re on the subject of mailing lists, there are options in Discourse that we’re working on enabling for people that prefer mailing lists over forums. Keep watching for updates about that.

You can click on “forum” on any page on our website to get to it or simply navigate to https://discourse.lubuntu.me or https://forum.lubuntu.me to join the conversation.

The quote in the title is from William Shakespeare, Richard II, Act II, scene 3, line 6 (c. 1595).
