Canonical develop Ubuntu, the world’s most popular free operating system, with help from a passionate and talented global community of 200,000 people. Ubuntu is an African word that means ‘humanity to others’. They chose it because it embodies the generosity of the community in driving Ubuntu’s development, and the open source model that’s delivered it to millions of users around the world.
Canonical and their community are building an operating system that runs across phones and tablets, TV, desktop and cloud. It’s secure and reliable, elegant and intuitive, and open for innovation. Ubuntu is the future of open source, but it’s easy to use today.
