Big Daddy Linux is excited to present a new series – Linux Spotlight. This show is dedicated to showing off the best thing about Linux…the community. The Linux community is comprised of enthusiasts from a variety of backgrounds, from developers and distro maintainers to Linux personalities and everyday users. Each of these members plays a big role in the community. The goal of Linux Spotlight is to have a discussion with these individuals about their journey into Linux and beyond.
In addition to the videos, there is also an audio version available.
In this episode of Linux Spotlight, it is my pleasure to sit down and talk with Mark Shuttleworth about his journey into Linux. We talk about his thoughts on Ubuntu and Canonical and his excitement for the future. I hope you enjoy this because I sure did!

In today’s episode of Linux Spotlight, I get to talk to my friend Dolphin Oracle who is a perfect example of a guy who started out just wanting to give back to a distro that helped him out. He started working his way through the community and development and coding to become the Lead for one of the most popular Linux distros out there. Enjoy!
