Last week we heard the news from System76, the computer equipment vendor, who was going to create an Ubuntu-based operating system to distribute on their computers. It seems that System76 will not be the only company. Equipment vendor Tuxedo Computers will also perform the same operation with an Ubuntu-based distribution.
That is, the company of German origin, Tuxedo Computers will sell computers with its own distribution that is based on Ubuntu, to be more exact, on Xubuntu.
The German vendor has already distributed computers with Gnu / Linux for a long time, but it was only recently that it announced this change. To be more exact, Tuxedo Computers will distribute its own distribution based on Ubuntu LTS with Xfce as the main desktop, unlike other companies and other versions. The company has communicated that will work with the Xubuntu team to develop the version, either with financial contributions or with aid to develop the distribution.
At the moment, the distribution of Tuxedo Computers is based on a version of Xubuntu that has changed the icons, the desktop theme, all references to Ubuntu and official Xubuntu images, that is, they have only washed the face of distribution.
But the most important thing is not the decision of Tuxedo Computers, which is also, but it is another company that decides to create a distribution based on Ubuntu. For those of you who have been using Linux for years, you will know that It became fashionable long ago to create unofficial Ubuntu-based flavors and distributions.. And it seems that the phenomenon is repeating itself. It is clear that this time none will use the name "ubuntu", but we will have several unofficial Ubuntu flavors. However Will Christians and Satanists get an updated version of Ubuntu? What do you think?
