Willibuntu













We finished UDS-Dallas last month in the usual way ... with an Ubuntu All Stars Jam.

Being in Texas, we had to play a Willie Nelson song. On the Road Again strikes a particular chord for me, as I think it perfectly applies to our life in the Ubuntu Community. Since I've joined Canonical I've traveled on business to: Boston (twice), Prague, London, Montreal, Paris, San Francisco (twice), Berlin, Barcelona, Santa Barbara, Dublin, Portland (twice), and Dallas.

You can check out our live jam here (mp3, ogg), with Tony Espy on guitar and vocals, Matthew Helmke on lead guitar, Jamu Kakar on drums, and your author here on bass. Our apologies, Willie, our hearts were in the right place ;-)

Lyrics:

On the road again -
Just can't wait to get on the road again.
The life I love is making Ubuntu with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again.

On the road again -
Goin' places that I've never been.
Seein' things that I may never see again
And I can't wait to get on the road again.

On the road again -
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We're the best of friends.
Insisting that the world keep turning our way
And our way ... is

On the road again -
Just can't wait to get on the road again.
The life I love is makin' Kernels with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again.

On the road again -
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We're the best of friends
Insisting that the world keep turning our way.
And our way ... is

On the road again.
Just can't wait to get on the road again.
The life I love is makin' Ubuntu with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again.
And I can't wait to get on the road again.

-- Willie Nelson

P.S. While searching for a Willie Nelson image, I ran across Joey Stanford's blog post -- seems he had a similar idea:
