Ubuntu: From Your Phone to Your Mainframe

Just minutes ago, Mark Shuttleworth took the stage at "that really big conference" in Seattle to announce that Ubuntu will be powering IBM mainframes. So, it's official: the brilliant OS that you love on your desktop, that is blazing a new trail in phones and devices, that is lighting up OpenStack and cloud computing, that is making the "Internet of Things" an internet of *your* things is now powering the world's most performant systems!

We live in exciting times!

There's lots of good coverage out there. I hope you'll take a few minutes to check it out.
