Ubuntu is a very popular distribution, not only among Linux users but also among users of other operating systems who already recognize the distribution as an operating system itself, something wrong since the operating system is Gnu / Linux.
Recently the Ubuntu team has created an infographic about users using Ubuntu or Ubuntu Core for their connections and devices. Canonical and Ubuntu are betting heavily on the Internet of Things and that has made (or perhaps the reverse) that Ubuntu is the most popular distribution among smart devices or web services.The infographic has several sections with data. Many of them very curious like the number of users that use Ubuntu to connect, a number that is equal to the population of Fiji, Estonia, Iceland, and the Isle of Man.
The number of web services and Internet servers that work with Ubuntu is also striking. Among the most famous services of all of them are Netflix, Spotify, Paypal, Ebay, Sky, Bloomberg, Tele2, AT&T or the popular Slack.
Canonical distribution is present in the most famous and powerful cloud services worldwide, that is, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Engine and Azure. All under the kubernetes technology that has made Ubuntu work efficiently in these environments.
Ubuntu is compatible with a multitude of Hardware platforms, something that is not unique since all Gnu / Linux distribution offers the same support. The problem is always with the manufacturer who does not usually provide all the necessary information, but it is something that is changing and partly thanks to Ubuntu that is being chosen by many manufacturers for their Gnu / Linux solutions.
The infographic can be viewed through this link. It is a very curious infographic, but I think it is something that many Gnu / Linux users already knew, although we also know that it is not the only Gnu / Linux distribution that offers facilities to its users Do not you think?
