A new Snappy Ubuntu Core 15.04 has been announced for Raspberry Pi 2, and users have been advised to re-flash their systems as soon as possible.
Canonical arrived late with an OS for Raspberry Pi 2, but they didn’t just port the regular Ubuntu OS. They’ve published an image based on Snappy Ubuntu Core 15.04, their latest version of the Ubuntu OS, which is based on the new Snappy package and is mostly aimed at IoT devices.
IoT is a concept that brings together devices that can be connected online, whether it’s a mini-PC like Raspberry Pi 2 or a smart fridge. All of these devices can either run their own operating system or they can be governed by one. Snappy Ubuntu Core 15.04 comes with its own Software Center, with dedicated apps.
