Even if Canonical hasn’t remade the consumer desktop with Ubuntu or made much of a dent with Ubuntu as a phone or tablet OS — at least, not compared to the way Google has with both Android and Chrome — there’s no denying the presence of Ubuntu as a server.
With the release of Ubuntu 14.04 on Thursday, Canonical is attempting to further define how it stands out from enterprise-centric distributions like Red Hat even as it shares features typically associated with Red Hat.
To do that, Canonical is focusing Ubuntu even more on the features used by the service providers who have taken it to heart, such as Netflix, Comcast, Verizon, and NTT. Two of the key technologies revved in the new Ubuntu release, Docker and OpenStack, are quickly becoming cornerstones for how such companies build their systems.
