Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The 2007 road map for the Ubuntu Linux operating system includes continuing its focus on the desktop, paying more attention to the server and garnering additional corporate support. Speaking at Ubuntu user conference UbuCon at Google's New York complex on Feb. 16, Steve George, director of support and services at Canonical, said, "The view from the Ubuntu side is that Microsoft has too much of the market. We're going to continue rolling out and making Ubuntu easy to use on the desktop and we'll add increased focus on the server this year."

You know, if it's free, it shouldn't be hard to market at all. It would be almost as nothing to get 'free' Linux CDs in the hands of every person in America... just ask AOL, they do it five or six times per year. Heck, get someone to partner with Wal-Mart or even McDonald's.
