http://feedproxy.google.com – In shocking news, Mark Shuttleworth, the dictator CEO of Ubuntu, has stepped down from his position. Starting the March of next year, Jane Silber, the current COO of Canonical, will take his place as the CEO of Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu. Mark Shuttleworth won't be completely leaving Ubuntu, but will instead focus his "energy on product design, partnerships and customers." What this means is that he will have the full time job of working on the Ubuntu desktop, instead of doing that and doing the tasks that a CEO is required to do. Things will definitely not change much for Ubuntu users, but how things are run at Canonical definitely will. All we can do is congratulate the new CEO Jane Silber, and wish Mark Shuttleworth the best of luck in his journey. (HowTos)
