Fro majority of people, Ubuntu is a fresh, new term that may sound very alienating and unfamiliar. However, for people who have been working closely with the computing industry, Ubuntu is just another term that goes in and out in their daily encounters.
But, what is Ubuntu all about? Who or what made it? Are there any clear and detailed specifications about it?
Ubuntu is an operating system that was developed under the impression of being communal. It is an operating system that works relatively fine with portables, desktops, and even server systems. The Ubuntu system contains majority of all the applications that one would ever need in his computing activities. Ubuntu is an African term that has a derivative meaning of “humanity to others”.
As an operating system, it is considered very powerful and strong although no licensing fee is required to have because it is a free software. Now, because of the reliability that Ubuntu has shown, it has become a good target to be virtualized.
Ubuntu virtualization is patterned from the Kernel Based Virtual machine. As a right pattern, Ubuntu has on its own a Kernel-based Virtual Machines that was developed and created by Qumranet. The KVM of Ubuntu is an integral component that is within the proper mainstream of the Linux-based kernels.
The Ubuntu as an operating system platform is a successfully implemented virtualization mechanism because of the full implementation of the Linux based kernels where no further enhancements and modifications were made and performed on it.
