Ubuntu is the readers’ choice

Ubuntu

Last Thursday I had the honour of accepting the “Linux New Media Award 2011″ in the category “Reader’s Choice – Favorite Linux” . Linux New Media is an international publisher of Linux magazines and has been giving out these awards for a number of years now. This year included a new category in which the winner was determined by the magazines’ readers voting on their favourite Linux distribution. And the winner is … Ubuntu!

Some strange circumstance put me in the spot of being at the CeBIT show in Hannover and accepting the award on behalf of the Ubuntu community. I realized that I am just a very small piece of that community which includes Canonical employees as much as the hundreds of volunteers that helped it become so popular. I made sure to mention those in my acceptance speech as well as the well-known “shoulders of giants” on which we stand. The award was presented by Kristian Kißling, chief editor of the German “Ubuntu User” magazine.
