IoT: ​Ubuntu Linux for the Internet of Things

​Ubuntu wants to be the OS for the Internet of Things | ZDNet:

"Canonical ... coming out with its own combination of Docker containers and a lightweight Linux distribution in Ubuntu Core, ... a server play.

Canonical, Ubuntu Linux's parent company, also wants to turn Ubuntu Core into the operating system for the Internet of Things..
Ubuntu recommends the Beaglebone Black for ARM Ubuntu Core developers.

"Ubuntu One self-heals because unlike most operating systems, when a change needs to be made, instead of patching the operating system or the application, the entire lightweight containerized stack is replaced. In addition, because in Ubuntu Core the separate operating system and application files are read-only images, it's much harder to infect either with malware."

"The app store for Internet things is now open on Ubuntu,"
