Canonical CEO Elucidates on Lucid Lynx Linux Server

,----[ Quote ]
| Silber added that Ubuntu to date has had a 
| strong concentration on the cloud that will 
| continue to ramp up over time as a key 
| opportunity for its server release. For 
| instance, with 10.04 in particular, the 
| Ubuntu project has aimed to position itself 
| as the best operating system for serving as 
| both a guest on a public cloud as well a 
| host to other guests.

| Part of that plan includes driving consumer 
| appeal by including new consumer technology 
| in Ubuntu. One of the new technologies set 
| to be included in the upcoming Ubuntu 10.04 
| "Lucid Lynx" release is the Ubuntu One 
| Music Store, which will enable users to 
| purchase music. Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx is 
| currently scheduled for release at the end 
| of April.
| "I think we'll continue to see more 
| acceptance of Ubuntu in the mass-market 
| consumer space," Silber said.

| Office and an early influencer and
| participant in the company's move to Open
| Source, Matt Assay will bring to Canonical and
