"My Frugal Tech Show co-host, Jason Perlow, and I spoke
with Canonical CTO Matt Zimmerman early this morning about the
upcoming Ubuntu releases and a few other selected topics of
interest to Ubuntu users. There are some secret goings on in the
mill at Canonical that he didn't tell us about but I can read
between the lines.
"Jason and I quizzed Matt about all sorts of technical and
non-technical aspects of the Ubuntu Linux distribution, upcoming
releases, Mark Shuttleworth's vision and his position. But, it
wasn't until I asked him specifically about the business end of one
of Mark's blog entries, did he stop short of tossing out some
breaking news about what they have up their sleeve.
"I asked him about a particular quote from Mark's blog: "We want
to put Ubuntu and free software on every single consumer PC that
ships from a major manufacturer, the ultimate maverick move."
