Linux Is A Platform For You and Me – Not Just For Specialists

An interesting interview with Canonical chief executive Mark Shuttleworth. He talks about choosing Ubuntu name and in a future undominated by Windows, how Ubuntu hopes to be the provider of a service ecosystem for free software. From the page:

Going to space and seeing the Earth from a distance makes it very clear just how interdependent we are. So I wanted to do something that was really global; free software is a phenomenon that is truly global.

=> Linux is a platform for people, not just specialists

    I believe that Ubuntu really has the general market for desktop Linux distributions. Their server versions are nice as well and the ability to have LTS (Long Term Support) is amazing for companies who wish to deploy open source software.
