Future Goals

I'd like to see a lightweight version of Ubuntu, something that runs well on low-powered machines and conserves battery power on laptops. I spend a lot of time optimizing my own Ubuntu machines toward that goal, and writing about what I've learned. I'd love to meet up with people or projects working on optimization.
