Ubuntu is everywhere

Many institutions use Ubuntu, including Netflix, Snapchat, Dropbox, Uber, Tesla, and the International Space Station.

This is according to Canonical, which is celebrating the upcoming Ubuntu 16.04 LTS release.

Ubuntu is a Debian-based Linux operating system, which is used in personal computers, smartphones, and network servers.

Ubuntu is developed by Canonical, a company started by South African-born entrepreneur Mark Shuttleworth.

“To celebrate Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, we wanted to shine a bit of light on how many people in the world actually use Ubuntu,” said the company.

Users aren’t required to register their installation, devices are pre-loaded with the software, and servers are powered by Ubuntu – making it difficult to track user numbers.

“The reality is, hundreds of millions of PCs, servers, devices, virtual machines, and containers have booted Ubuntu to date and are in use.”
