It has been almost two weeks since the official and stable version of Ubuntu Core was launched, a version that is oriented to the world of IoT. And despite the fact that a distribution comes with everything, the truth is that these versions are not compatible with all SBC boards that exist on the market.
That is why Ubuntu and its team of developers they have left this version a little freer than the rest of the versions so that its users can adapt the distribution to their needs.
Ubuntu Core can be adapted to any SBC board thanks to this online guide
As in any project, the first thing is the documentation. And Ubuntu and his team is what they have done. Currently we can already find one great guide for any user you can create your own Ubuntu Core for your SBC board. This is of great help because with this step it will be a matter of days before Ubuntu is compatible with Orange Pi, Raspberry Pi Zero, Banana Pi, BeagleBone Black, etc ... Number of boards that can function as a mini pc or also as a smart device in an IoT gadget.
But not only has the documentation been released but the presentation of such documentation has been optimized in such a way that the developer can read it on any part or device he has and has no problem creating his own version.
Regrettably Ubuntu does not give the same treatment to the rest of its versions, a deal that was closed a long time ago with the barrage of distributions that were created based on Ubuntu and used its name. In any case, this news is positive because it makes more free hardware is compatible with Ubuntu and also that this operating system is preferred by a platform that will coexist with us for a long time Do not you think?
