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."
The Register: "Canonical is the first Linux shop to have agreed to license the codec in question, H.264 from MPEG LA. Even though Red Hat and Novell are also available for use on PCs, they have not licensed H.264."
Linux Planet: "The market for CentOS Linux-based appliances continues growing, thanks in part to a new network-monitoring virtual appliance from GroundWork and commercial support services from OpenLogic."
Serverwatch: "What's really exciting is the ecosystem support that we've seen around this release," Canonical CEO Jane Silber said on a conference call announcing the release. "With over 80 vendors announcing support for about 100 applications, that's significant and a recognition of the long term support nature of this particular release."
Linux Pro Magazine: "Thus Canonical is implementing the cloud in its context. The DRM-free songs in MP3 format with a bitrate of at least 256 kbits/second are not loaded on the local machine, but in the Ubuntu One cloud."
Linux Magazine: "The inability to play the latest off the shelf commercial games has been a thorn in the side of Linux for a long time. With companies such as Valve starting to embrace other platforms, will that be the catalyst Linux needs to become a first class citizen? "
