Company wants to know what features, apps and features you would like to have in the next LTS.
It's been 4 months since the release of Ubuntu's next LTS, and a lot of anticipation has been created around that version, because by the carriage floor, it's going to be a big milestone in this Linux distro.
In an announcement on the official Ubuntu blog, robotics product manager Rhys Davies made a post asking for feedback from the Ubuntu community to learn what they can improve, include, what you think of the system, their frustrations. And also what would make you use Ubuntu if you don't use it. In an excerpt from the ad, one sentence caught my attention, which was:
Throughout the development process, our teams are present in the most varied forums and topics, listening to your comments to help inform our decision making. Our own engineers are incredibly passionate about Linux and the Ubuntu community at large, and our decision-making process always revolves around that fact.
Another part was:
Prior to our last LTS release, we sent a call to action to the developers to tell us how we can improve Ubuntu. Today we would like to ask our wider community for similar comments. With our next release on the horizon, there is still time to influence Ubuntu's final image and future roadmap.
This, to me, shows a change in Canonical stance towards which audience she wants to reach, as during Will Cooke's gesture it gave me the impression that Ubuntu was only focusing on the dev and sysadmins audience, and that the home user was in the corner. But it seems that in Martin Wimpress's gesture this tends to be different, so I hope. If you would like to contribute to the research, you can access it through this link.
