Exciting times for +System76 and +Ubuntu! Come, participate and find out more next week at the Ubuntu Online Summit :)
 
Nearly a decade ago, System76 chose Ubuntu as the operating system for its products. Ubuntu was easy to use, fast, and powerful. GNOME was served up in fine fashion. Ubuntu innovated in ways users cared about, but their identity largely existed under the surface.

If you’re building an operating system, your dreams don’t stop at compiling pieces and working around the edges. You want to design what people see and use. You want an intimate experience with your customers. Unity soon followed and set the course for phones, tablets and finally, Desktop Next.

With Desktop Next, Ubuntu is becoming what I’ve always hoped for. A unique user experience with a custom stack of core applications. While we might be out a year or more, soon enough we’ll have an Ubuntu email client, calendar, file manager, music player and more. All beautifully integrated with the desktop. All with a distinctive user interface and visual style that is entirely Ubuntu.

There’s a long way to go from here to Desktop Next and we have some questions about the journey. How will System76 and Ubuntu continue to service customers who require CUDA, OpenFoam, ParaView, and the myriad of other tools present in the archive? How will nVidia’s driver be installed? What will the OEM partition allow us to do? Do we have to maintain images for every product? Can we remove a package from the Ubuntu image - as is required on our servers? How will Ubuntu maintain its position as a hackers dream platform; particularly server and desktop parity?

Millions of us use Ubuntu Desktop. At Ubuntu Online Summit next week we learn about its future. I’ll be attended convergence and core sessions. I hope to see you there!

Yes indeed! :)
 
Just updated Circle Message. Nothing new in terms of functionality. Just added translations. Many thanks for them to everyone involved!

Great to see more Show & Tell sessions at the Ubuntu Online Summit! This one is surely going to be fun, QA community at its best!
 
+Nekhelesh Ramananthan  and +Carla Sella are two well known test authors in the Ubuntu SDK world.  

To help spread their expertise, Tuesday at 1600UTC, they are going to live consult with me as I add a test (or two or three) to my app! This session will be a great way to get introduced to unit testing and functional testing that comes with the Ubuntu SDK. A great use of the online format!

What a great week in Malta, sitting down with the teams and mapping out the next major milestones in our road to Snappy. 

Make sure to join us during Ubuntu Online Summit next week (5/5 - 5/7) to get updates and discuss any questions you have about Ubuntu.

Note that +Mark Shuttleworth is going to kick off UOS with a keynote on Monday 14:00 UTC (will be recorded).

Looking forward to seeing you all at the Online Summit!

Ubuntu Make 0.7 just released with the newly announced Visual Studio Code IDE support! Go get and try it ;)

Getting things delivered in a snap is again a proof showing how much #ubuntulovesdevelopers !
If you followed recent news, yesterday Microsoft announced Visual Studio Code support on stage during their Build conference. One of the nice surprise was that this new IDE,

I have respect for people who work on and contribute to Ubuntu, but do think it's important to publicize the terms and conditions of the Microsoft software:

https://code.visualstudio.com/License (see item 6)
https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/dn948229

Although it's nice to see MicroSoft publish something that "runs on Linux", what they're putting out is far from friendly to Free and Open Source software. There shouldn't be any mistake about that.

No excuses to start making your Ubuntu apps translatable!
 
A new tutorial is up showing you how to prepare your QML app for internationalization, including setting up a Launchpad project to receive community translations.

This is what I used to get translations working for uReadIt, and it's already been fully translated into German, Hungarian and Portuguese, with partial translations for Spanish, Catalan and Polish.
As a developer, you probably want to see your apps in many hands. One way to make it happen is to enable your application for translation. With minimal effort, you can mark your application strings for translation, expose them to community translators and integrate these translations into your ...

Ubuntu 15.04 and what I'm excited about.
15.04 is out! ubuntu.com. And another Ubuntu release went out the the door. I can't believe that it's the 22nd Ubuntu release already. There's a lot to be excited about in 15.04. The first phone powered by Ubuntu went out to customers and new devices are in the pipeline. The underpinnings of the ...
