Cool =D

One thing I thought odd, Mark looks more like a soccer player then someone who would make ubuntu.

Why not? He makes a good image. Time that the image of a Linux user changes to someone more athletic. For example, Richard Stallman and Alex Cox do look a little eccentric (Not that i have anything against them, mind), while Mark Shuttleworth looks like a normal user, like the rest of us.

It's from DebConf (http://www.debconf.org/) 5. Here are download links:

ogg theora version (http://meetings-archive.debian.net/pub/debian-meetings/2005/debconf5/ogg_theora/720x576/2005-07-14/02b-Ubuntu_Talk-Mark_Shuttleworth.ogg)
mpeg version (http://meetings-archive.debian.net/pub/debian-meetings/2005/debconf5/mpeg/2005-07-14/02-Ubuntu_Talk-Mark_Shuttleworth.mpeg)

Both around 250mb.

A quote that's been ringing in my mind from that talk was (in the lines of) "Every distro is a fork of upstream".

Very interesting, my interest in Linux is more intellectual rather than practical, but the movie still explained a lot of things.

Damn sure doesnt look like me :D

You are all clones!

I know he makes a good image, just mentioning he looks alot like some international soccer star or something.
