Canonical brings some bling to the Internet of Things with Snap-happy Ubuntu Core 18 release | The Register

Ubuntu here, there, everywhere

Canonical unleashed Ubuntu Core 18 on the public today following a beta of the locked-down Linux in December.

Ubuntu Core is Canonical’s pitch at the IoT and embedded market and brings the company’s Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, released back in April 2018, to devices that prefer stability to life on the bleeding edge.

Enthusiasts may wince, however, as many packages have been removed from the core operating system in order to minimise the attack surface. The less-is-more principle also applies to updates – Canonical reckons that by stripping away the chaff, the size and frequency of patches should be reduced as well.
