Ubuntu celebrates fifth anniversary

By Tim Quax on 26 oktober 2009

Canonical released the very first version of the Ubuntu Linux distro on October the 26nd, 2004. Five years later, Ubuntu has become the ruler of the Linux desktop and has achieved a level of popularity that has never been seen among the various distro's of the operating system.

Ubuntu was born from the Debian distro. The most serious weaknesses of Debian are the long development cycles and unstable release schedules, resulting in a killer combination. Ubuntu derived from Debian, knows the weaknesses and fixed them. Ubuntu has adopted a consistent six-month cycle. Consistently releasing updates, meaning users will always have the latest and most updated software.

Today IBM and Canonical are introducing a cloud- and Linux-based desktop package in the United States designed for use on corporate personal computers or even netbooks.
