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, based on POWER.

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.
