The Ubuntu Server Team wants to know how you use Ubuntu Server in day-to-day operations to help the team prioritize the support and development of future Ubuntu Server Editions. This is the second edition of this initiative which was first introduced in 2008. It has now been extended to include more cloud related questions.
The past few weeks have been pretty active in terms of people talking about Ubuntu Server Edition and more particularly about the Entreprise Cloud. Here is a loose list of what I have noted:
The result of the Ubuntu Server Survey that the server community, Canonical and Redmonk did a few months back are out! 6819 full answers were turned in, and just that, in itself, is outstanding. If you are part of those that answered the survey: THANK YOU, the data you helped us collect is great. If you were not, well, I guess we'll run another survey soon, so you'll be able to redeem yourself . For your information, the survey had more than 40 questions and took from 20 to 40 minutes to answer, so it was a bit of an investment to complete it.
Anyhow, if you would like to see the document that Gerry Carr and I put together about the survey results, it is available behind this short form. There are some great stuff in there, such as the following graph that shows that about 90% of the respondants consider Ubuntu Server Edition ready for mission critical workloads.
