Canonical has announced a new 'snappy' Core version of its Ubuntu Linux OS!

Damn... the Ubuntu folks are really trying to get to the cloud and in a BIG WAY!

Canonical has announced a new 'snappy' Core version of its Ubuntu Linux OS, designed for containerized applications in the cloud. It's the biggest change to Ubuntu in 20 years, says Canonical's lead product designer Mark Shuttleworth.

The 'snappy' Ubuntu Core is a minimal server image with the same libraries as today’s Ubuntu, but applications are provided through a simpler mechanism, aligned to container approaches such as Docker, and in competition with containerized Linux versions such as CoreOS, Shuttleworth told DatacenterDynamics in a phone interview.

Ubuntu Core is available immediately as alpha code and will be delivered as a stable release in April 2015, after which it will be developed in parallel with the existing Ubuntu - based on Debian pacakges - and reach a long term support (LTS) version in 2016.

Da Boss!
