Photo Retrospective: Ubuntu

I'm done triaging old photos, here's some of my favourite Ubuntu themed ones from 2005 to 2009.

The first Ubuntu conference I went to in Sydney featuring Andreas, one of the Kubuntu originators

The excitable Jeff Waugh who provided a lot of the character behind Gnome and early Ubuntu. Last seen writing a lament about the Canonical’s worsening relationship with GNOME which I must admit to being too lazy to read.

2009-05-29-kubuntu-groupphoto-uds-barcelona
A Kubuntu group photo in Barcelona from 2009, little did I know Barcelona would become a spiritual and practical home for Kubuntu.

2008-12-06-uds-hot-tub
It's important to build community in open source, Kubuntu has always used hot tub parties for this, you won't get that with any other distro.

2005-10-26-montreal-jonathan-mvo-seb-canonical-1
Canonical One flight to Montreal, these days I prefer to take the train, more environmentally friendly.

2006-03-10-uisprint-canonical
The first LTS release was preceeded by a polishing sprint in London where we worked on the first version of Ubiquity, the live CD installer.

2006-01-09-kubuntu-breezy-cds
Back in the day I had to post out every CD by myself. (I still get requests for CDs but we stopped having any physical media some time ago).

2005-07-12-paul-kubuntu
Paul taking his Ubuntu evangelising a little too seriously.

2005-04-29-sydney-jonathan-pool2
Ubuntu summits were often in fancy hotels which always surprised me by nobody using the swimming pool, I feel if life gives you a roof top swimming pool it's just ungrateful not to use it.

2005-04-02-sydney-jonathan-hacking-river
I like to go for a canoe if possible when I travel the world.

Have a fun holiday all, come and join us at Kubuntu if you want to be part of more world adventures.
