Martin Wimpress, the leader of the Ubuntu MATE Linux operating system, had the great pleasure of informing Softpedia just a few minutes ago that he updated the Ubuntu Pi Flavour Maker tool introduced by us in December 2015 to support porting of Ubuntu MATE, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, and Ubuntu Server OSes for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.
It appears that Martin Wimpress had early access to the Raspberry Pi 3 board, thanks to the awesome people at the Raspberry Pi Foundation, so he had three days to update his Ubuntu MATE 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) operating system for Raspberry Pi 3, as well as to the powerful Ubuntu Pi Flavour Maker tool.
“The Raspberry Pi 3 is available. The Raspberry Pi Foundation set me a unit on Friday night and I’ve been working with them over the weekend to make sure Ubuntu MATE, and other flavours, have day 1 support,” said Martin Wimpress.
