Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Mr. Shuttleworth's three points are Cadence, Quality, Design,
and they are all part of coordinated vision for the future of Linux
development. It is a very different vision from how it's done now.
The current state is very developer-centric. Software developers
start and maintain projects, and the quality, responsiveness, and
direction of projects are mainly controlled by the developers.
Mark's vision is broader and more ambitious:
""People often ask me why I'm so fascinated by Free software ,
and why I put so much time, energy, and money into Ubuntu...I
really believe the Free software process is the right way to build
software. Not only that, but there is the potential, if we raise
our game... that we could end up defining the experience that the
average person has whenever they turn on a computer."
