August 3rd, 2006, 07:44 PM
Simon Law, head of the Quality Assurance department at Ubuntu, has given a talk to the UW Computer Science Club.
In the talk, Simon explains (http://www.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/media/Software%20development%20gets%20on%20the%20Cluetra in.html) how Ubuntu is better able to respond to user request and bugs than traditional software companies, and how Ubuntu is taking advantage of the open-source model. Particularly interesting are Simon’s views on what motivates open-source developers to produce software, and how open-source oriented businesses (specifically Ubuntu’s Canonical (http://www.canonical.com/)) are making money.
