"1. A New Community: Sure, Ubuntu has a strong open
source community. And Shuttleworth will work to strengthen that
community. But Silber needs to strengthen a different type of
community — a Canonical business ecosystem that includes
hardware and software partners, service providers, channel partners
and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers).
"2. Strengthen the Server Story: To date, Ubuntu is known mostly
as a desktop and mobile operating system, with relatively strong
market share in the netbook market. But Canonical recently launched
its second annual Ubuntu Server Edition research effort. Meanwhile,
Sun Microsystems offers some support of Ubuntu Server Edition
— as do upstarts like System76 and ZaReason."
