Mark Shuttleworth Speaks with The 451 Group on Dapper and Ubuntu in the Enterprise

Ubuntu Project Founder's Comments, Analysis and Insight From 451 Analysts, Available Online

The 451 Group - a privately held, New York-based technology industry analyst company focused on the business of enterprise IT innovation – has announced that it has made available an interview with Mark Shuttleworth (pictured), the founder of the Ubuntu Project and Canonical, Ltd.

Shuttleworth spoke with The 451 Group about Dapper, the open source and free software movement and Ubuntu and Linux in the enterprise.

His comments, with analysis and insight from 451 analysts, are available online in a multipart series which will run weekly in four installments. The first installment, on Dapper and the open source and free software movements, is online at http://blogs.the451group.com/opensource/.

In early 2004, Mark founded the Ubuntu project, which aims to produce a high quality desktop software environment that is freely available all over the world. The project brings together the very best of the free software stack, and has resulted in the creation of a number of unique tools for free software developers, such as the Bzr revision control system and Launchpad.net. Sub-projects include specialised desktop environments for schools, and for the needs of people in specific countries or industries, such as Edubuntu and Kubuntu.
