Thanks to everyone who came to the Ubuntu UK Release Party last night. It was so wonderful to catch up with so many new and old friends. It was also wonderful to hear everyone’s generally positive feedback about the new release.
I am proud of Ubuntu 11.10 and what we as a community managed to accomplish. Of course, we have some challenges to solve as we head into the 12.04 cycle, we need to focus on quality more, support our diverse patchwork of community teams to be successful, and motive and energize our leaders. But there are also new opportunities at our feet as we strive to bring Ubuntu and Free Software to everyone and we continue to welcome a new generation of Ubuntu community members with each release.
I can’t think of a better community to work with to face our challenges and scale these opportunities. Here’s to 12.04… 🙂
