I really appreciate how much you guys have started to focus on Ubuntu specifically, I always hoped that you would bring this perspective to what is after all “The Ubuntu Podcast”. I appreciate every single insider interview no matter the topic. I have a server in the corner that I use constantly but as a barely technical, non-developer, desktop user a couple things strike me about this interview. First is the obvious excitement in David’s voice which tells me as much as a most of the technical stuff I barely understand. Second is the huge jumps seemingly being made in the things I do understand like the installer, and the server images.
As a side note thanks to these images, and things like snap, if I need to share gigabytes of one-off information, I find it a matter of 2-3 minutes to spin up a server on DigitalOcean, snap install Nextcloud, create a shared folder and drag the data there. Then when done just destroy the droplet with only cents (USD) having been spent.
