ALE-NE is taking a break until we find new meeting space. If anyone has any suggestions then let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As part of ALE’s recognition of the scheduled October 19th release
of Ubuntu 7.10 “Gutsy” and in consideration of the upcoming
Ubuntu GA / ALE Install Fest set for November 10th, our monthly
ALE Central Meeting on Thursday, October 11, 2007 will be:
“Planning the Future of Ubuntu Server”
presented by Rick Clark
Ubuntu Server Team Manager,
This presentation will provide an overview of the current and potential
directions for the Server Edition distribution of Ubuntu Linux. The talk
will address the new features found in Ubuntu Server 7.10, plus look
at some of the tentative plans for development of the 8.04 release.
Discussions will also include details of the strategic partnerships that
Canonical has entered into, with a special focus on the Vmware
components. The Ubuntu Server team is also very interested in
learning what features ALE members would like to see in their
professional Server OS, so open discussion will be encouraged.
Rick Clark has complete engineering responsibility for the Ubuntu Server
Edition as manager of the Ubuntu Server Team for Canonical Ltd, the
company behind Ubuntu Linux. Prior to his involvement with Ubuntu, Rick
worked in various system and security architecture roles for large financial
institutions and pharmaceutical companies. In the 1990’s, Rick owned and
operated an ISP in Gainesville, Florida. In 1995 he helped with the creation
of linuxnewbie.org, and a few years later founded linuxiso.org.
