Ubuntu Forums History:
The Ubuntu Forums were created by Ryan Troy (ubuntu-geek) in October 2004. The forums became a popular resource for Ubuntu and were deemed the Official Ubuntu Forums in November 2004. The forums hosting continued to be maintained and paid for by Ryan until March 2006, when Canonical graciously offered hosting for the forums. In June of 2007 the forums domain, license and assets were transfered to Canonical who is now the sole owner of the forums.
