Jono Bacon (full name Jonathan Edward James Bacon) is a writer and software developer based in the United Kingdom. Bacon started his work with the Linux community when he created the UK Linux website, Linux UK. When he left this project he moved on to join the KDE team, where he created the KDE::Enterprise website and KDE Usability Study. He has also been involved with helping charities using free software, as well as shaving off his beard for Amnesty International at LugRadio Live 2006.He co-presents the Linux podcast LUGRadio and founded Wolverhampton Linux Users' Group.

Additionally, he has created a heavy rock version of the Free Software Song, has a dachshund called Frankie and did boast an impressive beard until it was shaved off for charity. Until September 1, 2006, Bacon worked for OpenAdvantage, funded by Advantage West Midlands, a Regional Development Agency. As of September 4, 2006, he works for Canonical as the Ubuntu Community Manager. Bacon is the vocalist and a rhythm guitarist in the "detuned chugging metal band" Seraphidian. His website includes a number of songs that he has recorded separately from the band, including the aforementioned version of the Free Software Song. This is not where the music capabilities end, however.

In addition to his music site, RecreantView, Bacon has inspired an audio recording application called Jokosher, named as the name "Jono Bacon" contains "No Bacon", hence the "Kosher" part of the Jokosher name. Bacon makes it clear that he did not name the application, as the community for Jokosher developed it to fulfil a need Jono had. Bacon is part of the development effort and regularly exhibits progress of the application at most Wolverhampton Linux User Group meetings. In June 2008 Bacon started a new musical project called Severed Fifth. The aim was to produce an album in his home studio and then to distribute the music in new ways.

This was an experiment in how musicians can work in the internet era, outside the conventional music industry. The first album Denied By Reign was released October 21st, 2008 and features Heavy metal music styles.[3] Read more on Last.fm.
