The Future of Ubuntu


Ubuntu is everywhere today: desktops, servers, clouds, phones and tablets. As its reach spreads across so many devices, work is being done behind the scenes to make sure that one single Ubuntu codebase can provide a unique experience for each form factor.

Why is this important? How much work is involved? Can a single operating system really run on phones and desktops? How will this change the Ubuntu desktop?

This talk will explain the various technologies that deliver Ubuntu, from Debian, click, and snappy packages, system images, atomic updates, and more, and show how a single Ubuntu is emerging that can truly run any Ubuntu program anywhere. And best of all, you’ll learn exactly what this means for you.
