Heron (Ubuntu 8.04), the next version of Ubuntu that will succeed Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10, due for release in October 2007). Not only will the Ubuntu community continue to do what it does best, produce an easy-to-use, reliable, and fun free software platform, but this release will proudly wear the badge of Long Term Support (LTS) and be supported with security updates for five years on the server and three years on the desktop. I am hoping to see Ubuntu in every school in the United States.
We Can all make this possible by sharing our knowledge & compassion to our friends, families, co-workers and the community. The LoCo project is here to help groups of Ubuntu fans and enthusiasts work together in regional teams to help advocate, promote, translate, develop and otherwise improve Ubuntu. Our worldwide network of LoCo teams is providing a strong backbone to our already vast and extensive Ubuntu community. Why not go and see the full list of teams!
Ever since the birth of computers, enthusiasts and fans around the world have collected together in garages, universities and pubs to talk about their interest, learn from each other and help promote their interest. Combine this with the huge popularity of Ubuntu, and you have the Ubuntu LoCo project. So lets continue this history and share what we love, and the benifits we have to offer Ubuntu as well as what Ubuntu has to offer us as a community & world we live in.
Most people only ever see the end-user view of Ubuntu, running it on their desktops, servers and mobile devices around the world. For these users, Ubuntu provides a simple, convenient means to do what they want to do easily, effectively and without unnecessary complexity. For many of us though, we want to open up the hood and understand how the system works and how to extend and grow it. Thousands of us get out of bed every day, united behind Ubuntu, ready to make a difference, working together to make our vision happen.

One of the great things about the Ubuntu Community is that you are able to Invent applications and features for the next Ubuntu Release via Ubuntu BluePrints, with the communities knowledge and compassion we are able to make each Ubuntu Release better than ever with more features that are needed most. I strongly recommend Ubuntu BluePrints for the simple fact that just with one Idea may be able to see it in the Main Releases of Ubuntu. Why not share your knowledge compassion and troubles you are having with ideas to improve Ubuntu?
Share your ideas, and let Ubuntu Grow within us and the community here
