Recently Mark Shuttleworth hosted the Ubuntu Linux Developer’s Summit at Google in Mountain View. You can view his presentation on Google Video. Btw, the Google Developer’s site is an interesting place to find APIs for Google and other cool sites and tools.

My teenage son uses Ubuntu on his Dell PC and so far he can do everything he wants, i.e., AIM, web browsing, photo editing, and listening to MP3s. I installed Ubuntu on the Dell after a weekend of fun trying to restore Windows after a virus killed the machine.
