Jono Bacon: Ubuntu Open Week

Filed under
Ubuntu

Recently I have been working on a series of IRC events to help get new people into our community. As such, next week (Mon 27th Nov 2006 - Sat 2nd Dec 2006) the Ubuntu community holds our Ubuntu Open Week - a week of IRC tutorials and sessions designed to encourage more and more people to join our diverse community. In just two years, Ubuntu has grown to a user base of over 6 million and a worldwide community spanning many different disciplines.

The week of events includes sessions from some of the most well respected members of the Ubuntu community, on a number of different diverse subjects, including The Ubuntu Community, Kubuntu, MOTU, The Documentation Team, Edubuntu, Translating applications with Rosetta, The Bug Squad, Ubuntu packaging, Becoming an Ubuntu member, Launchpad, LoCo teams, Ubuntu Ports and a Q + A session with Mark Shuttleworth.

Huawei CEO: Will keep using Android as long as it's open

He made the said comment in a Weibo post, where-in he also noted that Google's mobile OS has promoted the development of smartphones, which in turn has benefited consumers. Interestingly, he didn't say anything about whether or not Huawei is developing an in-house mobile OS - said to be called Kirin OS.
