Shuttleworth sees the Linux desktop living on with Ubuntu 19.10

Canonical has just released Ubuntu Linux 19.10, Eoan Ermine. Like most modern Linux distributions, it comes with many improvements aimed at delivering enterprise services for the cloud and Kubernetes container orchestration. But Ubuntu hasn’t turned its back on the Linux desktop. 

In an interview, Canonical CEO and founder Mark Shuttleworth explained: “We never got the desktop into the consumer space. We’re still happy to give developers and system admins a platform. We’re still passionate about the Linux desktop.”
