    What DE does it use? Is it still Gnome?

    An Opensource debian based distro become corporate offering after aquired by canonical and is now becoming enterprise oriented distro and still marking them as opensource.

    Current CentOS Transition cycle. Ubuntu is moving towards that direction as well.

    Perhaps you could elaborate?

    In my view, the historical developments/roles of Canonical and Red Hat are rather different, and so oversimplified analogies are bound to be inaccurate

    In a sense, Canonical have offered a kind of "Ubuntu Pro" for a while now, but it wasn't baptized as such. The second five years of support for Ubuntu LTS -- beyond the first five years -- have been a paid subscription

    One could argue that since Ubuntu Pro is free for personal use and covers more packages, it's an improvement over the situation until now

    Canonical is a likely acquisition candidate for Microsoft, long term that makes me concerned. Other than that, good way to (re) build a subscription base among non corporate customers . Ubuntu One was a past attempt.

  • HxxxHxxx Member

    People have to eat. Profitability is always good. Balance is key.

  • We might get a new free Linux distribution, based on Ubuntu Pro.

    I am confident that those that look into the code will find something like that and report back. In my case, I prefer Debian 11 for my servers, and I use Debian with KDE at home and in the office. If this edition has a choice of DEs, I'd look at it.

    Speaking on the Corporate/ company/ business perspective, MS already have partnership with Canonical, and what better way to establish branding/ acceptance among the users for Azure than Ubuntu?

    AWS is also a close contender. I still recall the horror when I first saw amazon icon/ shortcut on Ubuntu toolbar. Made me leave the stock Ubuntu.

    As far as code is concerned - cannot comment.

  • It says Python2 there. Are they going to maintain it for security?

  • devpdevp Member

    Ubuntu have proprietary binaries that are not opensource and allow them to install from official repositories which is quite different from debian default FOSS only code-of-conduct with the capability to install proprietary software and drivers as per usage basis.

  • tjntjn Member

    Those that complain about Canonical "ruining" Ubuntu or prioritising corporate profits over open-source always make laugh.

    1 - Ubuntu became one of the most accessible and easy to use distro's that in a way brought a lot of people to the Linux world. Just look at how many tutorials there are for installing various applications on Ubuntu server for example.

    2 - If you really hate it that much, just go back to Debian - it's really not hard :D

    I personally use Debian and genuinely appreciate Canonical's efforts to make things easier in both the personal and enterprise Linux space.

  • NeoonNeoon Member, Community Contributor

    So you can run that snap peace of shit, even if Ubuntu ditches it, I hope they will, for another 10 years? uuuuuuuuu

    This is already a thing though? I've been using azure devops for a couple of years at my work, Microsoft runs hosted Ubuntu agents for build pipelines, they've got 18.04, 20.04, and 22.04 available right now.

    So I guess no new/more LTS version from now? Like there is no point in having LTS and PRO at the same time? Sad :(

    Ubuntu before Canonical was way better than what that is today in terms of performance. Most earlier contributions made to the core structure remains intact with minor updates.

    @tjn said: Ubuntu became one of the most accessible and easy to use distro's that in a way brought a lot of people to the Linux world. Just look at how many tutorials there are for installing various applications on Ubuntu server for example.

    Earlier debian and other were difficult as even basic distro installation have to be complied on the hardware for most installations. Even after compilation further significant configuration required.

    Ubuntu Community solves that by providing well supported precompiled binaries for a variety of hardware which make installation even on older hardware a breeze. Whenever required a large group of supporters were there to provide solutions and suggestion on the public forums. That was in 2010. Ubuntu also provide CD and ships to the address to anybody that asked for that through filling a form. Due to that large supporter group of people there arises a number of derivatives of Ubuntu which become popular for their specific use cases and many of them do still existing.

    @tjn said: If you really hate it that much, just go back to Debian - it's really not hard

    Debian travelled a lot far to catch up things eventually is now simple to install and support even a larger architecture set that ubuntu ever had.

    In nutshell Canonical is enterperising Ubuntu and having corporate deals while most softwares and drivers are developed by community members as OpenSourceSoftware.

    Simple question for you.
    Debian or Ubuntu? #1
    Almalinux or Rockylinux? #2
    above question's answer vs Cloudlinux? #3

    Outside of a shared hosting environment, I can't imagine anyone using CloudLinux...?

    Let's see..
    What sounds better for Marketers, investors/ Corporate talks: Github,a Microsoft company; or "We (Microsoft) are a Github partner"?

    Now, replace Github with Canonical and see what reads/ feels better. Remember which hat you have to wear to feel better though.

    --self deleted the financial and acquisition related comments. Not of interest for most--

    Where I am from, the words you typed can mean
    "Debian (I) Know, thanks"
    or
    Debian, no? Thanks.

    Both imply you are thanking @FatGrizzly for suggesting Debian.
