One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu – the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole world.
I’m pretty proud of our record of innovation, even we had U1 before iCloud, or the Windows equivalents; we introduced overlay scrollbars first; we designed Unity with a single icon left launcher, and full screen search, before anybody else. Apple’s launchpad, and Gnome Shell all came later.

As some of you might know I’m a dedicated Ubuntu user. So I like the idea of getting rid of Windows and/or Mac symbols on my beloved computer system.
System76 has released a neat laptop with a pre-installed Ubuntu operating system, the Serval Pro. And guess what? It comes with an Ubuntu key instead of a Win one. Looovely!
