Happy Birthday Ubuntu!

Today is Ubuntu’s ten year anniversary. Scott did a wonderful job summarizing many of those early years and his own experience, and while I won’t be as articulate as him, I wanted to share a few thoughts on my experience too. I heard of this super secret Debian startup from Scott James Remnant.

I was excited about this new mystery distribution. For many years ...

Thankfully MJ had planned on coming along to this event anyway, so I had companionship… and someone to carry the luggage :) This was Fosscon‘s 5th year, 4th in Philadelphia and the 3rd one I’ve been able to attend. I was delighted this year to have my employer, HP, sponsor the conference at a level that gave us a booth and ...
