TechWeb: Canonical officially launched Ubuntu as an enterprise Linux product just a few months ago [in June, 2005]. What was your initial take on how to position Ubuntu in this market?
Yates:: We have been building our services team and portfolio for a few months, ready for the launch of Ubuntu 6.06. This has generated quite some interest in the services that we provide, and we currently have some very interesting projects.
I think the next few months will see us involved more and more with enterprises looking at using Ubuntu to deliver business solutions. Previously, we have seen Ubuntu deployed in organizations where it it was hidden, but now with full and extended support, we are getting calls, to move to Ubuntu as a major Linux platform.
