Off to Boston for UDS, FSF, ETC

Tomorrow around noon I head off for Boston and the Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS).  The summit which is being held at the Hotel@MIT is a week long event used to plan and do real work on the next release, which in this case is Hardy Heron.  (Not that I will be doing any real work, but hopefully some real learning.)

Hardy will be the second LTS (Long Term Support - 5yrs of support on the server, 3yrs on the desktop) release for Ubuntu, the first being "Dapper" or "6.06".  Expect a whole bunch of hoopla around Hardy when it debuts on April 24th as "Ubuntu 8.04."

On beyond Ubuntu

In addition to hangin' with the Ubuntu folk, I will also pay a visit to Peter Brown and the Free Software Foundation as well as grabbing a beer with Michael Goulde of Forrester.  I will bring my trusty Flash Mic along and will hopefully grab a bunch of podcasts.  Speaking of which, I didnt get around to posting the four I did last week at Sun's Open Source Summit, something else to look forward to.
 

All Updated and Ready to Go

Just so the other kids at the summit don't laugh at me I updated this morning from Ubuntu 7.04 to 7.10.  It was pretty painless over the net particularly since I had a big pipe here in the office.  The only failure I got was "pmount" which, after checking the forums and a colleague I decided to ignore and hope its not somethin important :) 

Like its 1999

I'm looking forward to getting back to the Dirty Water, having gone to grad school in Beantown as well as spending a summer during college living in an MIT dorm. 

And if the Sox win in 4...the town's gonna party like its 1999!

Pau for now...

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
