Normally, a CEO waxing positively about his own product is nothing new, but this year has been a roller coaster ride for Ubuntu and I cant help but think this column is a harbinger of things to come for the OS.

The Ubuntu firehose is now open, but there are still a few obstacles to address before the prerequisite touchdown articles are written (hows that for a mixed metaphor?) How big is the demand, you ask? Dell IdeaStorm received more than 130,000 requests for pre-installed desktop Ubuntu in early 2007, but that number is a pin drop compared to the number of Red Hat and Novell instances in the enterprise today. And that number pales in comparison to the number of Microsoft Windows deployments worldwide. Theres also the recently raised concerns about Ubuntus documentation to address as well.
