http://www.linuxinsider.com – Mark Shuttleworth, founder and CEO of Ubuntu commercial sponsor Canonical, announced on Thursday that he is stepping aside to develop cloud products and begin new partnerships. He named Chief Operating Officer Jane Silber to take his place as CEO of Canonical. The change in management will begin immediately but will not be fully implemented until March 1, he said. The unexpected leadership change will not bring a change in the company's status or abruptly alter its focus, added Shuttleworth. (General)
