This month, I will have been with Canonical for 5 years. It’s been fantastic, but I’ve decided to move on. Next week, I’m going to start working for Google, helping out with ChromeOS, which I’m pretty excited about. I’m sad to be leaving Canonical, but I comfort myself by knowing that I’m not leaving Ubuntu or any other projects I’m involved in. I believe in Ubuntu, I use it everywhere, and I’m friends with so many of its people. And I’m still core-dev, so I’ll continue to break^Wsecure things as much as I can in Ubuntu, and continue working on getting similar stuff into Debian. :)
For nostalgic purposes, I dug up my first security update (sponsored by pitti), and my first Ubuntu Security Notice. I’m proud of Ubuntu’s strong security record and how far the security feature list has come. The Ubuntu Security Team is an awesome group of people, and I’m honored to have worked with them.
I’m looking forward to the new adventures, but I will miss the previous ones.
