Ubuntu: The desktop of the future
Most of what will determine the next generation of the corporate desktop won’t happen on the machine itself. The emergence of three trends: cloud technologies, thinner client computing and the consumerization of business technology means that for the first time since the 80’s businesses have the chance to think beyond Windows in
terms of what they deploy on the desktops and increasingly the palms of their employees.
In this session Steven O’Grady of Redmonk will explore and challenge this ‘future’ with founder of Ubuntu Mark Shuttleworth. Are businesses really ready to make a shift, if so how and when? Will the savings be real? Will the efficiencies be realised? And can the jail of legacy applications really be escaped? And is Ubuntu really the best choice?
