I really can’t tell you how exciting a place to be Canonical towers is right now! Yes, it’s hard work keeping up with all the feedback from the community, we’re terrifyingly close to a release and have to deliver final and updated assets until the cows come home and YES it’s UDS in 8 weeks – eek! We have much to do but this late on a Friday night I want to stop for a moment and just sigh because whatever the boards and the millions of fans and armchair experts are saying we’ve produced a release that is running beautifully and stably on my lovely new laptop and I am having a great user experience every day using open source software!
Beta will be out next week and you know what? Try it! Stick Ubuntu on a netbook or boot it from a CD or try it on a mate’s computer. I don’t care where! Just have a go! You could work and live in an environment like the one below!
