Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"DW: It seems that whenever Ubuntu changes something there's a
strong ripple of reaction that vibrates through the Linux
community. Does that affect how the team makes decisions or your
level of transparency?
"GC: No, decisions are taken carefully and, for the most part,
publicly. There is a wide variety of options for those who are
interested in participating in how those decisions are reached.
Consensus is more easily gained when that decision is reached
"DW: A while ago we heard that ShipIt was going to cut back on
the number of CDs sent out. What's the current status of the ShipIt
"GC: There is no change to the ShipIt program since the last
update. We continue to invest hugely in this program to make the
product available to those who need it.
"DW: Once 10.04 is done, where is the focus going to turn? More
social networking, new interface improvements, more hardware
support? What comes next?
"GC: We'll see at Ubuntu Developers Summit in Brussels in May.
Mark Shuttleworth, now VP of Product Design, has set out his
intentions for it here."
