Ubuntu Server Edition 10.04 Lucid Lynx: Canonical's ISV Priorities

RSS
WorksWithU sat down with Canonical's John Pugh to discuss his Ubuntu Server Edition 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) priorities, ISV (independent software vendor) relationships and Ubuntu cloud initiatives.

Pugh oversees Canonical's server ISV efforts. During the Atlanta Linux Fest (held Sept. 19), Pugh shared some quick thoughts in this FastChat video. Take a look...


Additional Moves

Off camera, Pugh mentioned that Canonical is making progress with closed source and open source ISVs.

Since Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) is a Long Term Support (LTS) release, he expects the April 2010 offering to attract some new ISVs. Without making any firm promises or announcements, Pugh added that Canonical continues to work to bring ISVs like Oracle into the Ubuntu world. Pugh also cautioned readers not to focus on any one ISV, since Canonical is speaking with multiple potential partners.

Canonical in mid-2009 announced that Alfresco (open source content management) and Openbravo (open source ERP) both run on Ubuntu Server Edition. But Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth has previously conceded that Ubuntu Server Edition needs more ISV support.
