I’ll be at Linux World Expo 2008 next week in San Francisco with Canonical, and as such I am putting the final touches to several demos including one about what is different / new / « better » in Ubuntu 8.04 (specifically) on the desktop. I am talking about technical features, so I thought I’d ask around in case we missed the usual suspects. Here are some that made it into my short list for now, but I’d love to hear other ideas:
- Easy and fast to try, install, use and upgrade: Wubi, LiveCD
- Free and commercial options for desktop virtualization
- Recovery options (at boot time in Grub, using bulletproof X…)
- Launchpad integration in apps (translation, bug reporting…)
- Desktop effects
I am also looking for any videos or screencasts of interesting uses of desktop effects. Who knows, your video may end up showing off Ubuntu at our booth 🙂 I started putting together a list of video resources on the wiki, feel free to add individual links to any you find interesting right there – or simply post a comment here.
