The H rounds up reports
from the Ubuntu Developer Summit that is currently being held in Oakland, California. Chris Kenyon, Canonical's Vice President of OEM Services, reports that Ubuntu shipped pre-installed on 8-10 million computers last year and predicted that it would ship on 18 million next year (which would be 5% of the market, he said). Also: "Ubuntu developers are planning to fork the GNOME Control Center to create their own Ubuntu Control Center package. Other than GNOME Shell, it is planned that the installation CD for Ubuntu 12.10 "Quantal Quetzal" will include almost all core components of GNOME 3.6, including Clutter. Up to now, Clutter has been missing from the default install which had forced the Ubuntu developers to include Totem 3.0 instead of 3.4 because the newer version depends on Clutter.
