Linux News Today: Mark Shuttleworth: We Are at Our Best When We Are Constantly Improving
Earlier today, May 17, 2016, Canonical and Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth has published a new blog entry on his website to thank the Ubuntu Community Council for their hard work.
According to Mark Shuttleworth, lately, the Community Council (CC) has done a great job of keeping the Ubuntu community happy, unblocked, and healthy. Their role in the grandiose Ubuntu project, for those not in the known, is critical if Ubuntu, as a community, wants to be at the top of its game.
“Their role is a critical one in the Ubuntu project, because we are at our best when we are constantly improving, and we are at our best when we are actively exploring ways to have completely different communities find common cause, common interest and common solutions,” says Mark Shuttleworth.
Of course, there’s always room for improvement, but so far, the Ubuntu Community Council is doing amazing things on their end. It looks like the Ubuntu community is indeed one of the healthiest communities we’ve seen so far, not to mention that Ubuntu Linux remains one of the most used desktop-oriented operating systems based on the Linux kernel.
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) is now the most advanced version of the acclaimed GNU/Linux OS, and Canonical has done a terrific job with this release, bringing users the newest Linux innovations and technologies, as well as the latest software applications. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS is available for desktops, servers, and cloud, supported for five years.
While most of us are still enjoying Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, the Ubuntu developers have begun work on the next major release of the operating system, Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), which will soon be rebased on the recently debuted Linux 4.6 kernel.
