Google Hosts Ubuntu Linux Discussion

Google frequently hosts “tech talks” to help employees understand key trends in IT. One recent tech talk, delivered by Ubuntu Community Manager Jono Bacon, focused on Ubuntu.

Bacon, who also spoke recently at the Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE), shares his vision for the future of the Linux desktop community. The video runs slightly more than one hour, but provides some key insights for those who are just getting up to speed on Linux and Ubuntu.


Live Keynote: Linux on the Desktop

BaconThe VAR Guy, our mystery guest blogger from, will be all ears when Canonical’s Jono Bacon (pictured) delivers his keynote today at the Southern California Linux Expo here in Los Angeles. Bacon will discuss the future of Linux on the desktop.

If you’re not here at the event, you can watch his 10 a.m. Pacific keynote online. The keynote is being streamed online, and is available at this link. His keynote is appropriately titled, “Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants: The Coming Of The Linux Desktop.” The VAR Guy, however, would make one subtle change: The Linux Desktop is already here.
