Ubuntu 14.04 will come to Phones, TVs and tablets

Ubuntu logoAnother 6 months, another Ubuntu Developer Summit event for Canonical, where Mark Shuttleworth is always present and keeps his audience captivated.

Yes, we’re talking about the Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS) event for the upcoming Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) operating system, which takes place these days, between October 29th and November 1st, in Copenhagen, Denmark.

And, as usual, Mark Shuttleworth delivered his keynote in the first day of the event, on October 29th, talking about some amazing stuff that will come to the Ubuntu world (see the video below if you’re anxious to hear what he has to say).

Mark started the keynote by promoting and praising the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) release, and immediately continued with his dreams for the next LTS (Long Term Support) distribution, Ubuntu 14.04, saying that the development team will try to achieve something really amazing, that no one else has ever done before: a single security update for all devices running Ubuntu.

Yes, that means that Canonical will try to bring Ubuntu 14.04 LTS to tablets, TVs and mobile phones. Great news, right?

Among other topics, Mark Shuttleworth also mentioned Valve’s Steam app for Linux, describing it as “the number one requested item for the last eight years” and confessing that he’s delighted about Valve’s appearance at the event, and that they chose Ubuntu as the first platform to deliver Steam on.

Mark confirmed that Ubuntu 13.04 will be the first official release of distribution to be available for Google’s Nexus 7 tablet, making it Canonical’s debut into mobile world, and that mobile computing is really the future we can’t avoid! Not to mention that he also presented a demo of Ubuntu for Android.

We’ll let you now enjoy the 25 minutes keynote video with Mark Shuttleworth at UDS-R 2012, which was just posted on YouTube!
