In an unprecedented move, Microsoft Corp. has acquired all rights to the Ubuntu Linux operating system (OS). The announcement came after numerous series of private negotiation meetings.

Several open source communities have already expressed stunned acceptance of the move that is sure to redefine the role of [Ubuntu] Linux in the consumer market. Or as some have indicated, remove it from the consumer arena altogether!

All parties have been unavailable since the initial announcement, however, the public news release indicated that all current Ubuntu LTS will be supported to end-of-line. Additionally, further development of the latest version of the popular operating system, Ubuntu 8.04 Beta has been temporarily suspended and no plans to continue the development of Ubuntu Linux were suggested.
