- Re: Ubuntu-SAN: Point-of-use dry sanitation and sludge beneficiation micro-entrepreneurship model - by: canaday April 24, 2014Dear Sudhir Pillay, This is a very interesting concept. The name Ubuntu is likely in reference to the South African solidarity concept, "the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity" (Wikipedia), but is it also a reference to the Linus software of the same name, because this technology will be equally open-source?
