Canonical is attending LWE next week in the Moscone Centre in San Francisco. We have taken one of the big booths, #716 so it should be hard to miss us if you are in attendance. One of the things we have been working very hard on over the last couple of years is establishing Ubuntu as a platform for users both as individuals and as  corporates. Ubuntu 8.04 LTS was a big step in advancing that process but LWE will show how far we have gone in achieving that goal.  We are being joined on the stand and hosting presentations from a plethora of the great and good of the ISV world including (in the order the list was given to me)

Alfresco: Open Source ECM Made Easy: Alfresco and Ubuntu

IBM Lotus Software: Be Free, Work Smart with Lotus Symphony

Savoir-Faire Linux Inc: SFLphone, An Open Source Desktop Phone for Professionals

Zimbra:  Next Generation Messaging on Ubuntu: Zimbra Desktop and Zimbra Collaboration Suite

ZSL: Empowering Enterprise 2.0 Computing Model

Centrify: Integrating Ubuntu into Microsoft Active Directory

IBM Informix: IBM Informix Information Management

LikeWise Software: How to Achieve Secure Integration of Ubuntu and MS Active Directory Without Breaking the Bank

Linagora: Apt-Get Install OBM, The New Killer Groupware Solution for Ubuntu

MySQL: What’s New in MySQL

Parallels: The Business Value of Server Virtualization for Linux Environments

Unison: Unified Communications on Linux – The Killer Application We Have All Been Waiting For

Untangle: Trade-Offs in Building Entire Networks in Software

This is an incredible list featuring many of the most exciting technologies around today and it is very pleasing to be at the heart of it all. You can read the full abstracts here. We will do our best to make these presentations available online for those that cannot make the event itself. For those that can attend, We encourage you visit the Ubuntu stand to say hi and to see many of the most interesting presentations at the show.
