Quotes

"The 14.04 LTS release offers a solid, intuitive experience which is easy to manage," Jane Silber, CEO at Canonical comments. "It is a viable and affordable alternative for those organizations considering a switch from Microsoft, and specifically those replacing XP or Windows 7 as they come to the end of life."
"Coverity Scan analysis found that defect density—the number of defects per 1,000 lines of code—was 0.59 among the openopen sourcesource code it analyzed, compared to 0.72 for proprietary code. Put another way, that means the openopen sourcesource code in the sample had 22 percent fewer errors than its proprietary cousin."
...now allows individuals interested in Open source software to view the state of affairs of participating projects by becoming Project Observers. "We’ve seen an exponential increase in the number of people who have asked to join the Coverity Scan service, simply to monitor the defects being found and fixed. In many cases, these people work for large enterprise organisations that utilise open source software within their commercial projects. By opening up the Scan service to these individuals, we are now enabling a new level of visibility into the code quality of the open-source projects, which they are including in their software supply chain." Samocha added
-In the words of CEO Jane Silber: "If we offer a service, we want it to compete on a global scale. For Ubuntu One to continue to do that would require more investment than we are willing to make."
