The weather forecast looks nice for a meetup this Monday eve at the PetSmart/Tim Hortons parking lot.
If anyone is able to attend, please post here so that I can confirm if the meetup is a go.  We would need at least 3 people able to attend.

Ok, there are 3 of us, available for the PLUG Mug, so the meetup is a go.

We had a very nice meetup last evening. There was Tom M., Mike and myself.  We broke off at 9 pm.
Mike and I brought our Dell XPS notebook computers and Mike seemed to get his multi boot menu to show up, so that he could easily boot into Ubuntu or Win 10.

I think that the boot was a one-off; happened because Tom is a good-luck charm.  :) Whatever I did in the parking lot to make it happen, I couldn't replicate at home. But to be clear, the issue isn't having a multi-boot menu (that has always been there in grub), it's getting Windows to boot from the grub menu (as opposed to getting it to boot from the Windows menu).

For those who are interested, I also showed off Windows 11 without upgrading Windows 10. The Windows 11 iso can be downloaded from any of several (non-MS) websites and installed in a separate partition. When you do this, the Windows menu gives you a choice at startup as to which one you want to boot into.
