It’s sometimes easy to talk about “Ubuntu developers” as if they are some faceless “others” who are separate from “Ubuntu users”. But the reality is that the line between user and developer isn’t quite as clear as many people imagine.
In the response to my recent posts, this mixing of user and developer has become even more clear to me, and I wanted to share it with everybody. These are the faces of some of the many non-developer users who make Ubuntu better for you.
Nekhelesh was one of the first contributors to respond to my postings, and he never slowed down. He has contributed multiple additions of Quicklists and Keywords, improving the Unity integration for many popular applications.
Trenton was another early contributor, creating Quicklists for several of the applications I had targeted for better Unity integration.
David is a long-time member of of my own LoCo Team, so I was thrilled to see him submitting patches to Ubuntu apps. He was also one of the first to have his contributions land in Ubuntu 12.04.
If you should happen to run into any of these guys online or in real life, be sure to thank them for making Ubuntu better for you.
