With it's second pick in the cloud draft Ubuntu chooses OpenStack...

Over at Desktoplinux.com they have a story about Canonical's annoucement that they have decided to go in a new direction with their cloud offering.  Instead of using Eucalyptus they will be migrating to OpenStack.  This will also mean that instead of supporting a E2C API they will be switching to the OpenStack API.  This means very little for most people but if you were thinking about building a private cloud with Ubuntu's solution it is a pretty significant switch. In our opinion OpenStack is the better choice for both you and Ubuntu.  The project has huge backers like NASA, RackSpace, Dell, Cisco and intel to name a few.  It's also gained a lot of momentum.  If you have looked at it check it out here.
