Seamless work and play across phones, tablet and desktops is the goal of Ubuntu’s design efforts. Mark will demo some of the latest inventions in UX in Ubuntu, preview new features that will land in 12.10, and outline the key areas of research and discovery as we move into a world where “personal computing” is being redefined and reinvented. On the server front, the focus is all cloud. With Ubuntu the #1 OS on public clouds, there has been a great deal of work done on the tools to support large scale (and small scale) deployments across multiple clouds. For web service developers building multi-service web applications, these new tools create an amazing development-and-deployment experience.

Great technical demo from a CEO. Even the marketing discussion was very low-key, and kept at a high technical level. Talk was directed at the right audience. Very impressed.
