"It's just fantastic for me to think how fast the things are moving. The last six months have been the most exiting six months in Ubuntu history."

"Quality is a way of being, it's not something you bolt-on afterwards. We didn't say we were going to give more time to quality in this release, we said we will gonna do quality all the time." - said Mark Shuttleworth.
