Ubuntu Live 2007 Day 1

Starting out the first-ever Ubuntu Live 2007 conference was Mark Shuttleworth's keynote followed by Stephen O'Grady and Jeff Waugh. The day was broken up into a variety of sessions from the deployment of an open-source model at Purdue-Fort Wayne to building cross-OS applications on Linux. Starting off the day was the announcements of Canonical Landscape for system monitoring and management and Ubuntu 8.04 being a Long Term Support (LTS) release. The day had ended with free food and drinks along with some entertainment and other fun. The Ubuntu Live 2007 conference is being put on by Canonical and O'Reilly in Portland, Oregon this week prior to the start of OSCON 2007. Phoronix served as media partners with O'Reilly for this event.

Google Photos In Mountain View

Google wouldn't allow visitors or those involved with the LF Collaboration Summit to take photographs inside their Mountain View campus buildings, but outside was fair-game. With that said, enclosed in this article are a number of photographs from this visit. Sorry, no pictures of their Space Ship One replica, their eco-friendly items, Goobuntu, or all of the Naked machines.
