Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Canonical, the lead commercial sponsor behind the Ubuntu Linux
project, has a new CEO this week. Jane Silber, the former chief
operating officer of the company, has now officially taken the
reins from Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth -- and is already
talking up what's ahead for the popular Linux distribution.
"In mid-December, Canonical announced that Shuttleworth would be
shifting roles at the company he started to better deal with
technical and community issues within Ubuntu.
"The change comes at a critical time for Ubuntu as a new
long-term support release, codenamed the Lucid Lynx, is set to
debut next month. The new release will be accompanied by new
partnerships and certification for the Linux distro as well as a
new brand and logo."
