My Freedom Zero <> Freedom 0

Was Richard Stallman wrong when he wrote the Four Freedoms? I would argue, and I am, that he views/viewed freedom through *his* lens, which is something that people normally do. RMS is a highly intelligent man, and accomplished programmer, and a thought leader for our movement. He is able to read source code. He is probably able to make any software work, if he were to apply his time and intellect or that of his staff.

Ubuntu was in "full force" at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last week. I was very happy to see the awesome booth we had, (which helped offset my disappointment about not being there.

Watch Jono's "Ubuntu: The Past, Present, and Future."

I just watched Jono's talk from SCALE [1] entitled "Ubuntu: The Past, Present, and Future." It's really quite an interesting talk, so I'm recommending it to you, my dear readers. I think he did a great job describing the key moments in Ubuntu's history. (Click image to view.) Towards the end of the talk, Jono makes some startling predictions. Do you agree with them? -- [1] Just why people insist on naming a conference after a kernel still baffles and disappoints me. Do we name car shows after carburetors? Didn't think so. ;)
