I have been a Solaris administrator for more than 10 years. I currently work for a large American corporation as a Solaris administration team lead.

I would be very pleased to see Linux become a true competitor to Microsoft Windows, rather than a novelty for techies. I've used Fedora as a web server in my garage. I have begun using Ubuntu on an old laptop that I use for Java code development and other general activities.
I have the following certifications.
Sun Certified Solaris Administrator (v7, 9, 10)
Sun Certified Network Administrator (v10)
Sun Certified Java Programmer (v5.0)
Sun Certified Cluster Administrator (v3.2)

Most of my experience is with implementing and maintaining Solaris systems. However, I have created several websites using Java technology - such as JSP, Servlets and JDBC - and want to get more real-world Java experience. Once such website is my personal page, http://john.storta.net

There are two things that I want to see in Ubuntu.
One is a Java-based media player. Not just a basic player, but something that really competes with Windows Media Player with playlists and the ability to monitor network folders for media files.

I also want to see more automation when it comes to browser plug-in installation. I hate it when I come across a plug-in that installs automatically with Internet Explorer and Firefox on Windows, but requires manual installation when running on Ubuntu - or any Linux distro.
