Ubuntu Developer Summit Reformatted; Is Canonical Starting To Cut Costs?

sfcrazy (1542989) writes "The upcoming Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS) scheduled to take place in Oakland, California in May 2013 has been 'canceled' and will instead be conducted online. This marks a major shift in UDS as they won't be physical events anymore. It's a very surprising move when the company needs physical interection even more as they enter the mobile space. It seems thecompany has started to cut cost and this doen't look very good as the company is not making any profit and doesn't have any product in the market which can promise any revenue. Ubuntu TV and Ubuntu for Android were announced more than a year ago and have not found any partners to bring them to users. Is Canonical spreading too thin and it needs to shed some weight and focus on its' core area — enterprise and server space?"
