Ubuntu Core Desktop will not be released alongside Ubuntu 24.04 LTS in April, as originally hoped.

Canonical doesn’t go into details about what specific issues need resolving. One imagines, given that the first Ubuntu Core Desktop release was going to be a preview and not a recommended download, it’s a myriad bugs/difficulties — ones not easily sorted.

      I do. I send in bug reports when I run into one, and try to provide details and context appropriate to the problem. I don’t know how to code, so that’s about as much as I can do.

      Just because Canonical has done something right doesn’t mean they are immune to blame for doing something wrong, and they have done some shit.

        Canonical has done something

        Linux is mainstream solely because of Canonical/Ubuntu. End of story. No, there was no WINE or Valve doing that, they were only supplemental over time.

            And what is this “shit” thing they did? Snaps are technically superior to the beloved Flatpaks in Linux community.

              Increasing analytics over time, that bullshit decision around 2015/6 to give an option to connect all your accounts to your canonical account, and yes snap. And no it’s not superior because although the frontend is open-source, the backend is still proprietary; that one fact alone is not a dealbreaker necessarily, but it is problematic and I don’t like it.

              Now, if the backend were to be made open-source, I would absolutely no problem with snap. I think it is otherwise is a great solution to the problem of fragmentation in the Linux community. But as it is, its increasing adoption is concerning. Closed-source stuff is the antithesis of the foss movement, and the longer it is proprietary the more easily it will be that ill-meaning companies are able to infect the foss landscape with their poison.

              You see it as a solution; I see it as a risk.

                around 2015/6 to give an option to connect all your accounts to your canonical account

                Oh no, an option! Bet you lambast KDE too for their horrific telemetry module, because nobody does it like them. They even include a wallet thing.

                yes snap […] Closed-source stuff

                Opinion discarded. Snap is not closed source. Canonical’s repo is, but you could have your own snap repo.

                  Oh no, an option!

                  Just the fact that they would consider such a tie-your-identity-to-a-corporation idea for a open operating system (in addition to the increasing telemetry baked into the distro itself) is concerning.

                  Bet you lambast KDE too for their horrific telemetry module, because nobody does it like them. They even include a wallet thing.

                  Not really. I don’t know anything about KDE.

                  Snap is not closed source. Canonical’s repo is, but you could have your own snap repo.

                  Irrelevant. Most people will not resort to using anything but the default repo, and it is, as we agree, proprietary. FOSS is not about walled gardens, controlled by closed licenses; it’s about transparency and fairness.

                  Opinion discarded.

                  You know, you’re really starting to be an ass. Fucking chill. I insulted a corporation, not your mother.
