Canonical Shop Open

The new Canonical Shop was opened recently which allows you to buy anything from Ubuntu tshirts and DVDs up to a 24/7 support contract for your server.

One thing to note is that this is the first site using our new Launchpad single sign-on infrastructure. We will be rolling this out to other sites in time, which should give a better user experience to the existing shared authentication system currently in place for the wikis.

  2. If you look closely, you’ll see that OpenID is being used under the hood to authenticate to the shop. As for accepting external OpenIDs as a form of identification, I can’t give a time line for that becoming available.

    Note that we are depending on a little more than a simple identity URL here though. A Launchpad ID also means we have a verified email address for the account, and don’t need to redo that validation when using the shop.
