Linux is one of the fastest growing mobile operating systems, with more than 150 million devices running the open-source operating system.
But with the release of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, we can see that the number of Linux-powered laptops is growing rapidly, as is the adoption of the operating system in other parts of the world.
In a post on the Linux Kernel Development forum, Bluehost’s Linux mailing list manager Matt Siegel said his company has seen a massive increase in requests for its Linux software, and is looking to expand its reach into the enterprise market.
“My laptop is now getting a lot more than what it was,” Siegel wrote.
“We’re adding about 10 new machines to our Linux infrastructure.”
We’re looking to add a few more machines, Matt Sigeld wrote.
I am hoping that we can have our Linux machines added to the list by the end of the month.
I think it would be great to have these machines available to a large audience.
Siegel added that Bluehost was also looking to support new Linux-enabled hardware, and that it was planning to provide an update to its Linux distributions with a new version of Ubuntu.
Bluehost has a strong focus on enterprise-class Linux machines, and Siegel expects that this software will be a big part of the future of Linux hardware in the enterprise.
“I’ve heard of people adding Linux-based PCs to their home networks, and this is something I think is going to be a huge part of our future,” he wrote.
“The biggest change we’re making to the kernel is making the default boot process for the Linux distribution a bit different than what we currently have, and we’ll be providing updates for this over time.”
Siegel said that BlueHost was also thinking about supporting new hardware in its Linux distribution.
He said that he would like to have his Linux machines available for the next couple of weeks, but added that there was still time for him to respond to more queries.
