So, a new year has past, and now we have arrived at 2014. This blogpost will be a short report about the last year, and some thoughts about what 2014 hopefully will bring.
I have been Team Leader for the Swedish Ubuntu Community now for about eight months now, I think. It has been a very awarding time, but also a very frustrating time. The Loco here in Sweden has not been working that great the last couple of years, but with a lot of work, it’s on the right track now. Hopefully it will be less arguing and fighting on the message board, and we all start working together to bring Ubuntu to the masses.
There has been to much time and effort just to make peace between the members. At least it feels like I got a few members start working for the Ubuntu development, with translations and advertising for the operating system.
I have been testing Ubuntu on my Nexus 4 mobile phone too. I was quite skeptical in the beginning, but after I have tried in “in real life”, I think they are doing a great work with the system. Canonical will be the first to make an operating system that is working on all platforms. The same system om computers, tablets, mobile phones, tv’s. At the moment I have both Ubuntu and Android 4.4.2 dual booting on the phone, since I’m working on some apps for android too. Hopefully I will start making some small apps for the Ubuntu phone too.
Ubuntu for the mobile phone.
I’m unemployed again. For some time ago, I started work with the swedish support for iOS users. But recently we were too many on the helpdesk here in sweden, and they had to let 15 people go. I was one of them. You can say a alot about Apple and there products, but working for them has been quite good to getting to know the mobile business and to learn how iOS and iPhone works. Now I know for sure that I don’t want to have an iPhone any more. =)
I have also starting to watch Firefox OS. I really like what those guys are doing. And I like the idea of an mobile phone OS in HTML5. An light weight OS, its easy to write software for.
In six days I turn 40 years old, but I don’t feel that old. I’m enjoying life and I’m living with the best family in the world. This year I will start up some interesting projects and work harder towards my goals. 2014 will certanly be an interesting year.
Stay tuned for more info later on…
