Linux distribution, Ubuntu, may soon be making its way off your desktop/laptop and into the connected device space. During the Ubuntu Developer Summit the founder of Canonical (company that funds Ubuntu development), Mark Shuttleworth, issued a challenge to the Ubuntu developer community to begin pushing beyond the traditional PC form factor and onto tablets, phones, in-dash car stereo units, and smart televisions.
While no products were ready to be announced, Mr. Shuttleworth is confident the OS and its Unity interface will be ready and shipping inside consumer electronics by the time version 14.01 is released in April 2014. Can’t say I’m much of a Linux guy but I know some of our readers definitely are. Do you guys think Android has something to worry about? Would love to hear your thoughts.
