Shuttleworth: Linaro: Accelerating Linux on ARM

Jun 04, 2010, 18:47 (0 Talkback[s])

"Mark Shuttleworth posts his thoughts about Linaro. Canonical will be working closely with the project, which has plans for six-month release cycles like Ubuntu. Linaro will also be using some Ubuntu infrastructure such as LaunchPad. "And finally, there are teams aimed at providing out of the box 'heads' for different user experiences. By 'head' we mean a particular user experience, which might range from the minimalist (console, for developers) to the sophisticated (like KDE for a netbook). Over time, as more partners join, the set of supported 'heads' will grow — ideally in future you'll be able to bring up a Gnome head, or a KDE head, or a Chrome OS head, or an Android head, or a MeeGo head, trivially. We already have [good] precedent for this in Ubuntu with support for KDE, Gnome, LXE and server heads, so everyone's confident this will work well."
