Welcome to the WorksWithU vodcast, produced by contributing bloggers Joshua Chase and Nick Ali. Here are some details about this week's video, plus some hints about where we're heading next.

In this edition, Josh and Nick discuss recent Ubuntu developments -- including the launch of Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope), plus some key Canonical initiatives and directions.

Josh and Nick are familiar names to many Ubuntu community members. Both are active in the Atlanta Ubuntu Loco, and they speak regularly with Canonical insiders as well as Ubuntu industry leaders.

Feel free to post comments. We consider the vodcasts a work in progress, where Josh and Nick take time out of their busy schedules to bring you the latest chatter from across the Ubuntu universe.
