Achieve Unity in German! Vereinfache Dein Leben.

What do you get when you remix UVLC's Unity Orientation Guide with an amazing dose of enthusiasm and multilingual talent? A strong dose of pure amazing!

After the release of our guides, I was fortunate to receive a note from "Fast Edi" Hoffman from Offenburg asking if a German version would be welcomed. Wow. Yes! Yes!!

Here's the result:

In his own words:
Fast Edi - Freedom Fighter!Fast Edi - Freedom Fighter!"Als Freier Software Aktivist bin ich vor kurzem über die praktischen "Guides" der Vancouver Ubuntu-Community gestolpert.

Da ich mit meiner Community versuche, Linux und Freie Software weiter zu verbreiten, sind solche Einsteiger-Leitfäden ideal für Menschen, die bisher nur proprietäre Betriebssysteme verwendet haben. Und da ich kein Entwickler oder "Hacker" bin, möchte ich durch die Übersetzung der Gemeinschaft etwas zurückgeben.

Ausserdem kann ich diese sehr gut geschriebenen Werke in meinen Kursen als Schulungsunterlagen verwenden. Und als Beispiel für die grandiosen Wirkungsweisen Freier Lizenzen und der internationalen Zusammenarbeit der Freunde Freier Software."

Please join me in thanking "Fast Edi" for taking Ubuntu and Unity to an even larger audience, to our German friends on the other side of the chasm.

Outstanding work Fast Edi! Thank you for a job well done! :)
