Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
Ubuntu Edge, the next-generation smartphone that Canonical wants to build by tapping funds directly from end-users, has set the record for the most money raised in a crowdfunded campaign.
At more than US$10 million, it passed the previous record (US$10,266,844) set by the Pebble smartwatch. However with just six days to go, the campaign looks likely to also set a dubious record for a high-profile campaign that failed to meet its target.
