On the Thursday at OSCON, Ubuntu and Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth gave a great keynote entitled, “Making Magic From Cloud To Client.” He did the entire keynote and live demo on a project Sputnik laptop (a Dell XPS13 running Ubuntu 12.04LTS)!
Here it is in its entirety:
Some of the ground Mark covers:
- A fantastic demo on Juju and writing Juju charms showing how you can design a complex topology, deploy that in memory on your laptop and then map the whole shebang to the cloud.
- How JuJu charms allow for “encapsulation and reuse”
- The idea of crowdsourcing ops
- A demo showing how, in realtime, you can map actual running infrastructure from one cloud to the next (in his demo he mapped it from EC2 to an HP cloud)
- The idea behind Unity and the principle of having one UI that works across phones, tablets, desktops and even TVs.
- The HUD
- Project Sputnik going from pilot to product this fall where you will be able to purchase an XPS13 from Dell with Ubuntu preinstalled.
Pau for now…
You’ve linked to the wrong video!
Oops, and now it’s fixed…I should just have waited…
No worries 🙂
Does anyone know if Mark was using a stock XPS 13 from the Dell online store? Or was he using a newer model that isn’t available yet?
He was using the very same system anyone can get off the web site, of course with Ubuntu installed. 🙂
