    Jono is a face and voice of Ubuntu I've always respected. During my years with Linux, I've been an on-again/off-again Ubuntu user, but despite that I still enjoyed his Q&A sessions and the way he carried himself on G+ and the like. He just seemed human.

    While I am undoubtedly quite sad to see Jono leave, the nature of the position he's moving towards sounds like a great fit. Best wishes, Jono!
