We also now have Facebook, Identica and Twitter profiles, as well as a YouTube channel. The next step is to get lots of user stories, photos and videos on the site. In particular, we’ll try to include informative videos on how people used Ubuntu in their institution to deliver education.

Better LTSP and Netbook installers

Each year, the team at Tidelift asks developers to update us on how they are managing their use of open source dependencies for application development. In June 2019, almost 400 professional software developers responded to our survey with input on "how they use open source software today, what holds them back, and what tools and strategies would help them use it even more effectively." As we roll out the 2020 survey, we'd like to share some of the fascinating things we learned in 2019's survey results. Where are things going well? And where are they not going so well? Here are three examples. You can take the 2020 survey right now, and then continue on to some of the most interesting 2019 findings. Read more
