Canonical’s wildly popular Ubuntu Linux distribution (this writer’s hands-down favorite) continues to quietly play a role in the continued widespread adoption of Kubernetes. And that quiet support is as it should be, concluded Kelsey Hightower, Google Cloud Platform principal developer advocate, and Mark Shuttleworth, CEO of Canonical, in this latest episode of The New Stack Makers podcast.
Taking a step back, Ubuntu, as well as Linux in general, has become much easier to use, expanding beyond what many once considered to be a server operating system and an esoteric alternative to Windows.
Those working in the cloud native space and in Kubernetes environments, for example, may even be inclined to report that they “can ignore the low-level details,” Hightower said.
Eventually, Kubernetes adoption and management are also expected to pose less of a concern for developers and operations teams.
