This week in design – 5 November 2010

We’re back!

Phew! What a fortnight! Did you miss us? We all got back from Orlando, Florida this week and prepared to kick off the Natty development cycle in style. UDS-N was a great event and big thanks should go to Jono, Jorge, the Canonical admin and technical teams and everyone who attended sessions, took notes and participated. I took a lot of photos and I know others did too so go check them out as well as catch up on the planet to see what people talked about while they were there and now they’ve recovered from the jet lag!

Now our attention turns to other things. Natty is only 6 short months away. The Natty release schedule is up on the wiki and we’ve started development and design work.

The big news was obviously the move to Unity on the desktop and Mark has been blogging about other changes that will come to your favourite Linux desktop in April 2011.

Oh and finally I saw something exciting today to do with Ubuntu and robots! The Qbo project uses Ubuntu as the base for their development distro and they’ve released their first alpha. Charline, Otto and I sorta love robots and are secretly hoping that by talking about these guys they’ll send us our very own personal open source robot 😉

Check out their blog post and video.
