As you well know, Ubuntu has recently undergone a makeover and is looking rather fabulous – that’s not to say we weren’t before, but there is a noted difference. As with most brands which move on, it’s always good to look back and remember the journey they’ve made. I clearly remember the older logos for Intel, Apple and Dell to name a few and seeing those now are very rare but quite a treat in a way. One of these days Ubuntu will be another one of those brands to add to the list.

So where is all this going? Well the good news is now you have a chance to grab a bit of history for a limited time only – the Ubuntu shop is currently running a promotion where if you purchase a customised Ogio messenger bag, you will also receive a free Ubuntu 10th release anniversary T-shirt. For further descriptions and specifications of the products, you can visit the promotional page on the Ubuntu shop.

Don’t miss your chance to be on of the lucky few to hold onto some original Ubuntu merchandise – who knows, it may be worth a small fortune in the future </p>

With all the recent focus on the cloud, one might (not quite) forget the pervasiveness of the Ubuntu Desktop.   Last week we ran two sessions of a webinar about migrating your desktop to Ubuntu.  We had excellent registration and attendance levels (always pleasing to the heart of a marketer), but even more importantly, I got a distinct sense of readiness from the audience – readiness to move to Ubuntu (as well as being informed that indeed many users already have).

For curious souls, you can check out the recordings of the webinar for the morning session.

In the past few months, you can’t help but have noticed that we’ve been refreshing the identity of Ubuntu and Canonical. If you’ve missed it, please check out the all-new and websites for a flavour of what we’ve been working on. Don’t forget some of this work is already reflected in the most recent 10.04 LTS release.

As we roll out this new look, one key group we want to support is our partners. We’re pleased to announce that the updated partner logos (Gold, Silver and Bronze) are now ready and will be made available along with all the other supporting logos in the partner portal (log-in required). Just point your web browser to to get the Ubuntu logo appropriate for your business.

We’d also ask that you carefully read the accompanying guidelines. These are designed to help you use our logos effectively to not only demonstrate your understanding of our products and services, but also show them off alongside your brand in the best possible way.

We hope you like them, and if you have any feedback on the guidelines please do let me know.
