Ubuntu 2007: The Year in Review

With 2007 coming to an end, I started thinking about the time I’ve spent in the Ubuntu community. This was the first year that I moved from being a user to a contributor.

Writing for the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, I try to keep my ear to the ground and track the major happenings in the community. It is truly amazing to see how large the Ubuntu community is and how fast it continues to grow. To LoCos getting more and more interested members everyday, all over the world, to the increasing numbers joining the MOTU ranks. Two great releases have garnered Ubuntu lots of press and blog coverage. Here are some of my highlights of the year.
