Ubuntu’s Death Rattle

Filed under
Ubuntu

Having just posted my thoughts on the Dell/Linux sham, it hit me… This must be the sound of Ubuntu’s death rattle.

Having failed to turn a profit year, after year, Canonical/Ubuntu has put all of it’s remaining energy into this deal: from the website re-design with the focus on Dell, to the recent video/talk marketing efforts made by Mr. Shuttleworth.

I _would_ say that all the eggs have been placed into the same basket, but if you look at the past, you quickly realize the rest of the eggs have already been broken and this is a last effort attempt.

The killer software package made it the best Android phone of the previous generation. The Pixel still represented Google's first foray into smartphone hardware, though, and it didn't offer anything special in the hardware department. It was a bland-looking iPhone clone.

Google said it wanted to make its own hardware, but it didn't actually build special hardware. Read more
