  • Kirkland: Over One Billion Ubuntu Users

    In response to my article this past weekend about It Doesn't Look Like Ubuntu Reached Its Goal Of 200 Million Users This Year, Dustin Kirkland of Canonical's Ubuntu Product and Strategy team has come out to say that number should be over one billion.

  • More people use Ubuntu than anyone actually knows

    But in reality, hundreds of millions of PCs, servers, devices, virtual machines, and containers have booted Ubuntu to date!

  • Ubuntu aims for true convergence across devices in 2016

    It seems Canonical - Ubuntu's parent company - may achieve it its convergence goal in the new year. The move will allow you to get the same experience of Ubuntu whether on PC, tablet or phone. This will likely mean apps, too, will become cross-platform.

  • Review: Mint 17.3 may be the best Linux desktop distro yet
  • Mint's the Best and Ubuntu Don't Care

    Last week Michael Larabel reminded the community that Mark Shuttleworth had predicted 200 million users by this year and then estimated the number to be "tens of millions." Today Canonical's Dustin Kirkland fired backed. In other news, Scott Gilbertson has again declared a version of Linux Mint "the best Linux distro" and Tecmint.com looked at the desktops of 2015.

  • Make a Wish for What App You Want on Ubuntu Touch

    Ubuntu Touch is still considered a young platform, so there aren't many native applications available for it. The guys from the unofficial app store for Ubuntu, the uApp Explorer, have put together a list of desired applications for this mobile operating system, and there are at least a few surprises among them.

  • Ubuntu-Mate

    I liked the early Ubuntus, and then became disillusioned when later releases became fat and slow. That was mostly the fault of the desktop environments that were included with each version. Lubuntu, which used the LXDE desktop, was a tremendous improvement, but I found the shortcomings of LXDE too much to bear. When I discovered the MATE desktop, I was happy again. (I currently use Debian with MATE; my wife uses Linux Mint with MATE.)

  • Kramden Institute bridges digital divide with refurbished computers
    Ken's love of programming eventually led to a job at Canonical, and then he learned about the Kramden Institute. "At first I was just excited about what they do for so many children," he says. "It's truly an amazing organization. After hearing about Kramden, I very quickly signed up to work a Wednesday work night, which was really a blast. Wednesday evening at Kramden is an event to remember. They are incredibly well organized and almost always have a full house. It's a community of folks that want to help these children; I just fit right in."

  • Maru Is an Android OS on the Phone and Debian Linux When Connected to PC
    A new project named Maru promises to provide users with a full Android Lollipop experience on the phone and switch to a Debian Linux distro when connected to a monitor and peripherals. A phone that is powered by Android and magically transforms into a Linux desktop when connected to an external display has been tried before. It was called Ubuntu for Android, and it was one of Canonical's earliest attempts at some sort of convergence between the mobile and PC worlds.
