ServerWatch: "Canonical, the lead commercial sponsor behind the Ubuntu Linux distribution, is gearing up to launch a new series of support and services offerings for enterprise desktop and server users."
Linux Magazine: "Red Hat is the king of commercial Linux support, no doubt about it. Canonical has entered the market and with some refined support products could present a very compelling alternative."
Cyber Cynic: "I like the brand spanking new Ubuntu 10.04 a lot. But while I like its GNOME 2.30 interface, I also like other interfaces such as KDE. It would be nice if Ubuntu could also play MP3s, common video formats and Flash from the get-go."
Cyber Cynic: "Hardware companies don't tend to have their own Linux distributions. But, no major OEM (original equipment manufacturer) has had a house-brand Linux... until now. Surely HP is not getting into the Linux distribution business? Are they!?"
Tom's Hardware: "Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, is pinning its hopes of OEM acceptance on the Lucid Lynx. We've put the screws to this new Long Term Support (LTS) release, comparing it to Canonical's previous LTS release, 8.04 Hardy Heron, to look for progress."
Cyber Cynic: "Today, IBM and Linux go together like peanut butter and jelly � or, if you're prefer a tech business analogy, Microsoft and Windows. IBM does it because Linux brings in billions for the companies not only on mainframes but across its server line and its consulting businesses."
