Community

The Ubuntu Community

We are a meritocracy, not a democracy. That means we try to enable the people best equipped to lead, then we let them lead with confidence. Candidacy is contingent on competence. We optimise for signal over noise.

Participate

There are many ways you can participate in the Ubuntu community. Just find the right level or interests that works for you.

  • The Ubuntu Discourse is where contributors shape ideas through open discussions.
  • The Ubuntu Forums are a huge and fast-moving online forum for user chat and problem solving.
  • Share your technical know-how with others by answering questions on Ask Ubuntu, powered by StackExchange.
