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.

    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.

      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.

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

      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.
