Mark Shuttleworth has a blog post announcing the new snappy Ubuntu Core OS support for ARM and x86 small board computers. If you haven’t heard of it before, Ubuntu Core is a new version of the popular Ubuntu Linux operating system that’s targeted at cloud services and supports modern best practices for security like application isolation with Linux containers. With this announcement Ubuntu Core now supports a handful of Linux small board computers like the BeagleBone Black, ODROID-C1, and more (unfortunately the Raspberry Pi isn’t supported yet). This is very interesting news as the Ubuntu Core operating system design, with heavy focus on application isolation and transactional updates, is foreshadowing what could be the future of modern operating systems.
