System76 Chick Update!

I can't believe how fast November went by! With the release of our Bonobo Extreme, the holiday specials and the holidays, I've never watched time fly as much as last month!
If you didn't hear, our Bonobo Extreme was quite the surprise for System76 customers. A beefed-up 17" gaming laptop with a dedicated graphics card, HD screen and multi-color backlit keys, would make any geek drool. Extreme is only one word that describes this beast of a laptop. It's pretty serious.

I also activated my Steam Beta Key for Linux and started playing Serious Sam. Nothing beats a little monster smashing at the end of a busy work day. I have our Leopard Extreme set up to try next when I get some down time. I can't make it past this ambush part...

I'm currently working on follow up interviews for the Ubuntu Women Blog, covering the ladies featured in previous issues of Full Circle Magazine. I'm chugging away at the Colorado Loco Ubuntu Group Social Networks, slowly gaining more followers every day. I created lists of Ubuntu LoCo Groups and shared them on our networks, hoping to connect with other LoCo Groups. I'm also sharing Ubuntu news as often as possible. I'm going to keep working at it until I figure out a good strategy to grow the group socially. I'd love to hear from other LoCo groups on their social media wins and losses, and gain some feedback on how to increase engagement. I'll put that on my agenda for next week and start researching the lists I created.

I can't forget to mention all the happy customers I'm talking to every day at System76. They just don't stop. I can't believe how incredible our customers are, and I'm just loving every phone call and email I get. I received this email from Ian in California after he ordered his new Bonobo Extreme and a Leopard Extreme. He's been our customer since 2008 and his letter totally made my week!
