HP Is No-Show At Ubuntu Event

Bummer. Hewlett-Packard’s Linux CTO, Bdale Garbee, didn’t show for his scheduled keynote session this morning at Ubuntu Live.

I will try not to read too much into this and will ask Canonical why Garbee didn’t join the event. For now, though, it appears that Dell remains the only top-tier PC supplier pre-loading Ubuntu.

Update, 11:51 a.m., July 23: I spoke with a Cononical rep who said Garbee simply had a scheduling conflict. Also of note: While HP hasn’t announced plans to pre-load Ubuntu on selected PCs, the computing giant has won a big Ubuntu deal with a major university. Details at TechIQ magazine.
