Ubuntu Hardware Summit Success !

The second Ubuntu Hardware Summit (UHS) took place on Friday 24th September in Taipei. The event, on a bigger scale to that of 2009, was more popular this year, being over subscribed and attracting almost 200 individuals from the Taiwanese ODM and OEM community.

After the inaugural 45 minute keynote from Matt Zimmerman, CTO of Canonical, there was plenty to discuss and take in before the break-out sessions. The Tracks on the day ranged from enabling hardware, the state of multitouch, dualboot and the Ubuntu Client Roadmap. This is now a must-attend annual event to really continue to push Ubuntu as THE Operating System of choice to millions.

Presentation slides from the day will be live at on 30th September, and video footage of each presentation will be available to download from 5th October.


Canonical Showcases at IDF San Francisco

Canonical showcased new products at the Intel Developer Forum last week. The Canonical stand had demonstrations for Ubuntu Light, Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 and the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC) proposition. The hardware on show highlighted the breadth of services on offer leading up to the end of the year and the work with Intel on the UEC product in particular, was testament to the commitment shown by the project teams from both companies to provide a full enterprise solution. This is the third year Canonical have had a booth at IDF, following on from Mark Shuttleworth’s Keynote speech in 2009. Canonical continue to work with Intel and hardware partners to enable Ubuntu to be not only a Windows alternative but a real Operating System of choice for end users in both mature and developing markets.
