The company behind Ubuntu

You might think a large company wouldn’t be behind the distribution and updating of a free piece of software but in the case of Ubuntu you’d be wrong. The company’s name is Canonical, Ltd and they’re owned by South African businessman Mark Shuttleworth. The company operates and updates Ubuntu while working with software developers around the world to improve and fix any issues. They generate their money by providing technical support and other services and they’re a terrifically successful company. Development on the software continues constantly and enough changes are made that they can release a new version every six months. Soon Canonical plans to release a version of Ubuntu that supports smartphone, tablets, and televisions. As they get better with the desktop interface and the software in general they hope that Ubuntu can eat into the market share of Microsoft and its Windows products. It might happen.
