Today’s a legal holiday in the US, but we like to post an entry in the blog every weekday to keep you from getting bored. I can’t promise to relieve the boredom today, because today’s entry is about me.

My public face on the site is that of the author of these blog posts. I also send out the monthly SourceForge newsletter. If you follow our Twitter feed or like our Facebook page, you’re seeing more of what I do. Recently I also began helping out on Slashdot, our sister site, posting occasional articles when regular authors are away or unavailable.

My job title deserves some explanation. When I joined the company in 2003, it was as an editor for sites that provided original content for people interested in open source and information technology – NewsForge, DevChannel, ITManagersJournal, and Linux.com. All have since shut down, except for Linux.com, which is now produced by the Linux Foundation (and still worth visiting). When I moved to SourceForge.net last year, my primary role was to foster community, so we simply combined the new and old roles into a hybrid title.

First impressions of Ubuntu 15.04

Canonical's Ubuntu operating system is probably the most widely used Linux distribution in the world. Ubuntu is made available in several editions, including desktop builds, server builds and there is a branch of Ubuntu for mobile phones. Ubuntu provides installation images for the x86, ARM and Power PC architectures, allowing the distribution to run on a wide variety of hardware. The most recent release of Ubuntu, version 15.04, includes a fairly short list of changes compared to last year's Ubuntu 14.10, however some of the changes are significant. Some small changes include an upgrade of the kernel to Linux 3.19 and placing application menus inside the application window by default. A potentially larger change is the switch from Canonical's Upstart init software to systemd. Read more
