Ubuntu strips a phone OS to the Core

Filed under
Ubuntu

At MWC Canonical was showing off something quite clever called Ubuntu Core, While there is not much groundbreaking here, this OS variant puts together existing bits in a very useful way.

Ubuntu Core started out more or less as the Ubuntu Phone OS with all the bells and whistles under the hood that make a mobile OS suitable to the task. The main change between Ubuntu the elder and Phone is not the UI, it is the packaging system. Phone uses containers rather than the traditional Linux methods of shared libraries, everything else is just fluff on top.

Ubuntu

Don't look now but Ubuntu has become the Linux for clouds. On the AmazonElastic Compute Cloud (EC2), for example, Ubuntu is the most popular operating system by an almost two to one margin. 64 percent of production OpenStack users have also chosen Ubuntu to stay on top. Canonical, Ubuntu's parent company, is adding even more cloud and container functionality to the next version, Ubuntu 15.04.

With this release, Canonical is adding a new snappy Ubuntu Core. This light-weight Linux is designed for transactional systems, such as cloud container hosts, and smart devices for the Internet of Things. The new Ubuntu will also include updated developer tools and the latest frameworks, languages, databases and packages. On top of this, Canonical's adding its new container-based hypervisor, LXD.

Inspiring the Next Generation of Open Source

The Linux Foundation works through our projects, training and certification programs, events and more to bring people of all backgrounds into open source. We meet a lot of people, but find the drive and enthusiasm of some of our youngest community members to be especially infectious. In the past couple of months, we’ve invited 13-year-old algorithmist and cognitive developer Tanmay Bakshi, 11-year-old hacker and cybersecurity ambassador Reuben Paul, and 15-year-old programmer Keila Banks to speak at Linux Foundation conferences. In 2014 when he was 12, Zachary Dupont wrote a letter to his hero Linus Torvalds. We arranged for Zach to meet Linus–a visit that helped clinch his love for Linux. This year, Zach came to Open Source Summit in Los Angeles to catch up with Linus and let us know what he’s been up to. He’s kept busy with an internship at SAP and early acceptance to the Computer Networking and Digital Forensics program at the Delaware County Technical School. Read more

    A Debian software package containing an "ASCII representation of zoophilia" has been installed automatically on some users' machines. According to a bug report, Debian user Felicia Hummel installed a package called "cowsay", which turns text into ASCII art of cows (or other animals) with speech or thought balloons. But with default settings of "install suggests" enabled, a controversial second "recommends" package called "cowsay-off" was also installed.

  • Late Post For Ubuntu Community Appreciation Day 2017
    I am also very thankful for LaTeX2e and Tex Live. It has been a great thing to have to prepare devotional materials for church. I am thankful for the MOTU folks maintaining Gummi which is the editor I use on Xubuntu. Xubuntu is what I run on my laptop that goes many places with me. Tex Live is run both on the laptop and on the Raspberry Pi 2 at home.
