Filed under

Ubuntu

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Canonical may have all but given up the fight to ship Ubuntu on consumer PCs in the United States, at least for now, but it remains staunchly committed to forging strong relationships with hardware manufacturers. The company’s latest effort in this vein is a new Web portal catered to that group — which is also a significant example of how Canonical is reconfiguring the way people find information about Ubuntu. Read on for details.

Announced Dec. 9, 2011, the new portal — odm.ubuntu.com — is billed as Canonical’s compilation of the best resources for hardware manufacturers (OEMs) and designers (ODMs) produced by the Ubuntu community:

KDE: Simple by Default, Powerful When Needed

And it is also something they would fight tooth and nail for if we wanted to take it away (as many a KDE maintainer who dared to remove a feature he thought was unnecessary can tell). Read more
