Ubuntu is taking over the Internet-of-Things and few are aware of it. The number of devices running Ubuntu is about to explode, into a territory no other OS has been before. Godspeed.
Summary:A smartphone that can work as a desktop may be a long shot but the pursuit of mobile technology has brought many benefits to Ubuntu, according to Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth.

Introduction
I'm a researcher at the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology in Luxembourg and a PhD student at the University of Lisbon. I work on the GIS field, more specifically on geo-spatial web services and geo-spatial simulation.

In a parallel life I created the first Portuguese language website dedicated to Peak Oil in 2005 (PicoDoPetroleo.net), in 2006 I was a founding member of ASPO-Portugal and later that year integrated the team that started the European branch of TheOilDrum.com. I currently blog AtTheEdgeOfTime.
