TV Interview with Mark Shuttleworth – Video August 9, 2006

Posted by Carthik in news, ubuntu.
trackback

Mark Shuttleworth was interviewed on More4 News. The page mentions the fact that Mark does not do too many TV interviews. In the video Mark states the case for Ubuntu being a competitor to Windows, and talks bout how it is a wonderful oppurtunity to effect change during one’s lifetime. Talk of philanthropy and technology dominates the interview.

When you’ve made £400m before your 30th birthday -you’d probably want to spend the rest of your days living the highlife.
But not Mark Shuttleworth who made his fortune when he sold off his internet security company four years ago.
Since then, he has given half of it to charity and bought a £13m pound ticket to space station.
Now he’s working hard to create a free software – which he hopes will rival Mircosoft. He has given a rare interview to More 4 News.

He doesn’t look like a millionaire, or behave like one :). May his tribe increase.

If you want to download it first, install mimms (in universe), open a
Terminal, cd to the directory where you want to save it and run

mimms mms://a589.v154785.c15478.g.vm.akamaistream.net/7/589/15478/v0004/origin.channel4.com/news/2006/08/08_net_m4.wmv

It will take a couple min (the file is ~11MB) but it saves quite nicely 🙂

It’s nice to have someone heading up the whole shebang who seems like the kind of person you’d want as a leader. I think Ubuntu’s focus on people and the end user is so important to its ever increasing popularity.

thanks a lot for the links. the “missing plugin is unknown but it is missing” message of firefox was ridiculous at best!

I think ubuntu’s ultimate goal is just to serve users for as long as it can. And I fully appreciate Mark for his selfless efforts in making ubuntu a huge success.

software that works versus Free software that will not let you easily connect to the Internet, I think it is clear which most people would choose.
