        15 November 2022: Canonical announced today the availability of new enterprise-grade Ubuntu images designed for next-gen Intel IoT platforms. Purpose-built for industrial environments and use cases, the latest Ubuntu images on Intel hardware deliver the performance, safety, and end-to-end security enterprises expect from the most widely used Operating System (OS) among professional developers with latest Intel technologies pre-enabled and available .​
        So they're going to distribute Windows 10? Buh-dum-tss

        "pre-enabled" -- Enabled before it was enabled -- Quantum Enabling.

        Ok, so if y'all want one more laugh, look at their download links. 4 go to one iso, 4 go to another iso, 2 go to one iso, 2 go to another iso. That's 12 links pointing to 4 iso images. Is "amount of iso images available" some form of distribution dick measurement and is making it look like you have more images than what you really provide like trimming the hedges so it looks bigger?

          I was hoping for the announcement of the successor of the Intel Edison.

            Theoretically they're disk images designed to be written to particular flash storage modules specific for a particular device/class and forgotten about till the admins are notified they need to switch out images (by repeating the process) with several years worth of enterprise level support with the option to enable automatic updates or not - some regulatory environments are very rigorous at what's allowed. Everything has to be manually gated with strict testing requirements.

              I think that ship has sunk.

                yes, I know what the idea is about, but the question is: is anyone using this for something?

                  Ubuntu is to fat for IoT with a 300MB iso, and Intel has no IoT hardware...
