Ubuntu releases Hardy Heron remixed for MIDs


Ubuntu has released a version of their v8.04 Ubuntu Linux (aka ‘Hardy Heron’) for MIDs, UMPCs.

The new builds will are optimized for Intel McCaslin and Menlow-based devices and include:

  • User interface in HTML, Flash, Clutter, Python with GTK, C/C++ with GTK and Java
  • Different application sets for different products or configurations
  • Integration with popular Web 2.0 sites
  • Internationalization and translation support to meet market requirements
  • Custom sets of licensed media codecs and third-party proprietary software for commercial partners
  • Custom engineering

Ubuntu is a hugely popular distribution of Linux (I know it’s my favorite), so if this is as good as the desktop releases, and I have no reason to believe it won’t be, it’s definately worth checking out whether you’re a Linux fan or just looking for a new OS/UI to try out on your device.
