Canonical proudly announced a few minutes ago, May 10th, the immediate availability for download of the Ubuntu 12.04 Business Remix operating system.
Do you remember Ubuntu Business Remix? Of course you do, it was introduced by Mark Shuttleworth and Canonical a few months ago, on February 10th, 2012, with the motto “Time costs money. Save both.”
At that time, it was based on the Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) operating system, but now it is based on the recently released and already popular Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) distribution.
“Most businesses deploying Ubuntu on corporate desktops perform a similar set of tasks – from removing consumer-focused applications and integrating with existing infrastructure, to installing commercial software for application virtualisation.”
“Designed for corporate and government organisations evaluating Ubuntu for their desktop infrastructure, the Business Desktop Remix is a simple base image that can be deployed into your corporate environment or used as a starting point for further customisation.” - was stated in the official announcement.
Created for small businesses and corporate/government environments, Canonical removed all the games, file sharing apps, social networking programs, and technical utilities from this edition of Ubuntu 12.04.
Ubuntu 12.04 Business Remix includes VMware Viewer, the OpenJDK 6 Java Runtime Environment, and Adobe’s Flash Player plugin.
But that’s not all! Because it is now based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin), the Business Remix also features support for Microsoft Windows RDP 7.1 and the Microsoft Visio diagram importer in LibreOffice Draw.
This time, the Ubuntu Business Remix is distributed as ISO images for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. However, a free registration is required first.
Not only that, but being based on Ubuntu 12.04, this version of Ubuntu Business Remix is also an LTS (Long Term Support) release, supported for 5 years, and compatible with all Ubuntu certified hardware!
