42 day widget

Canonical

on 11 October 2010

Yesterday we successfully released the new versions of Ubuntu family. As you all know, yesterday was such a special date which occurs every 100 years: 10/10/10. But if you are a fan of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, as we are, you would also know that 42 is THE answer. Since 101010 is 42 in binary, and Ubuntu is our 42, we couldn’t help to take this date very seriously.

To celebrate this special event where hopes, people and bits get together, we created a little widget that you can easily embed on your website (more pictures on the way):

For more info about it and how to use it, please visit this page.

Enjoy!
