Canonical announces that Samsung has selected version 16.04 LTS of the

operating system as the primary Linux distro for some of the ARTIK internet

of things modules.


														
							

This is a smart choice by Samsung, because long support is preferable to bleeding edge for an IoT device.”The Samsung ARTIK platform is a fully integrated chip to cloud and production-ready Internet of Things solution, designed to help companies accelerate their product development process, reduce time to market, and improve total cost of ownership for their IoT products.” says Canonical.

The company further says, “The move to Ubuntu will bring greater long-term support to ARTIK’s developers and users, providing five year maintenance and security updates. This maintenance will build on the current one year update cycle of ARTIK’s existing Linux distribution.

These regular updates and releases will align with Ubuntu’s long-term support schedule, allowing for stability and predictability across IoT, server and desktop releases. Developers will also benefit from support for numerous connectivity options including Wi-Fi, Zigbee, Bluetooth in addition to audio, video and graphical frameworks.”
