Ubuntu shop for the US opened
Good news for Ubuntu users in the US of A wanting to buy something from the online shop of Ubuntu/Canonical. A US-based shop has been opened in St. Louis, Missouri enabling less expensive and faster shopping for people in the US.
The rest of the world can still order from shop.canonical.com which went on August 2007. The U.S. and international shops can both be found at shop.ubuntu.com.
The U.S. Ubuntu Shop (usshop.ubuntu.com) carries a wide range of Ubuntu-branded items, from best sellers like organic cotton t-shirts to CDs and DVDs of the latest Ubuntu software, and will soon include Kubuntu merchandise for the first time.
The U.S. shop was ‘soft-launched’ during the Ubuntu 8.l0 release on October 17, 2008. With the distribution and ordering system fully tested it is now on general release.
