I had the distinct honor to deliver the closing keynote of the UbuCon Europe conference in Paris a few weeks ago. First off — what a beautiful conference and venue! Kudos to the organizers who really put together a truly remarkable event. And many thanks to the gentleman (Elias?) who brought me a bottle of his family’s favorite champagne, as a gift on Day 2 🙂 I should give more talks in France!
The team is now hard at work evaluating many of the suggested applications, for those of you that aren’t into the all-Emacs spin of Ubuntu 😉
Moreover, we’re also investigating a potential approach to make the Ubuntu Desktop experience perhaps a bit like those Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books we loved when we were kids, where users have the opportunity to select each of their prefer applications (or stick with the distro default) for a handful of categories, during installation.
Marius Quabeck recorded the session and published the audio and video of the presentation here on YouTube:
