Canonical develops Ubuntu, the world’s most popular free operating system, with help from a passionate and talented global community of 200,000 people. Ubuntu is an African word that means 'humanity to others'. It was chosen because it embodies the generosity of the community in driving Ubuntu's development, and the Open Source model that’s delivered it to millions of users around the world. They are best known for their desktop operating system, used by over 20 million people, but Ubuntu Touch brings the intuitive user experience to smartphones, and is now available as a developer preview. And their cloud suite offers a clean, repeatable and manageable stack for anyone deploying private or Public Clouds. Year Founded : 2004
Ubuntu Core, also known as Snappy, is a stripped down version of Ubuntu, designed to run securely on autonomous machines, devices and other internet-connected digital things. From homes to drones, these devices are set to revolutionize many aspects of our lives, but they need an operating system that is different from that of traditional PCs.
