Ubuntu 14.04 is the latest Long-Term Support (LTS) release from the
Ubuntu community and Canonical[4].  This talk will be a tour of new
features, offer an overview of what both desktop and server users can
expect from this release and an update on the progress of Ubuntu on
Phones and Tablets.

Ubuntu Community Council and is a co-author of the upcoming 8th edition
of The Official Ubuntu Book. Here in San Francisco, she serves on the
