"7. Rugged Ubuntu Devices: EmperorLinux Inc. President and CEO Lincoln Durey showed me a small, rugged Panasonic Toughbook device running Ubuntu. Durey mentioned the device is ideal for such vertical markets as real estate, health care, and insurance. Watch for a FastChat video featuring Durey to debut on WorksWithU later this week.

"6. More Cellular Devices Coming: Pete Graner, Canonical's kernel team manager, told me to expect cellular and mobile broadband-type companies to offer more Ubuntu-oriented devices.

"5. Small Business Server Remix? Nope: Pugh said Canonical wasn't currently working on any type of Small Business Server version of Ubuntu. But he said Ubuntu in the cloud and Ubuntu Server Edition could certainly meet small business needs. Plus, Pugh noted groups like Amahi are working on Ubuntu for home servers."
