Today we celebrate our amazing Ubuntu Community and show our appreciation for all the hard work put into making Ubuntu what it is today.

Ubuntu is not just an operating system, it is a whole community in which everybody collaborates with everybody to bring to the life a wonderful human experience. When you download the ISO, burn it, install it and start to enjoy it, you know that a lot of people made magnificent efforts to deliver the best Ubuntu OS possible.

To show our appreciation, the Community Managers and Designers have nominated several community application developers to receive a special thank you for their outstanding work:

  • Dan Chapman (dekko)
  • Boren Zhang (dekko)
  • Kunal Parmar (calendar)
  • Stefano Verzegnassi (docviewer)
  • Riccardo Padovani (calculator, notes)
  • Bartosz Kosiorek (calculator, clock)
  • Roman Shchekin (shorts, docviewer)
  • Joey Chan (shorts)
  • Victor Thompson (music, weather)
  • Andrew Hayzen (music, weather)
  • Nekhelesh Ramananthan (clock)
  • Niklas Wenzel (terminal, dekko/platform)

We’ll send everyone an official Ubuntu keychain and sticker pack.


 

We also got hold of some other special Ubuntu items and because it is impossible to pick favourites, names were drawn out of a hat:
