Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This could potentially be quite big for Ubuntu and Linux in general. Canonical and the Chinese government have announced a collaboration to build a version of Ubuntu specifically for the Chinese market, which will become the reference architecture for standard operating systems in the country.

Do say if you need a more in-depth explanation.


Thanks, but I was already coding for UNIX commercial systems before Linus came up with Linux and I use GNU/Linux since the 1.0.9 kernel.

As for my explanation, yeah maybe I should have explained it better, because both kernel and userland ABIs are required for applications to run. Unless you code something using direct kernel calls only, without any runtime library.

So what applications there are, compiled around 2000, which make use of kernel only stable APIs that run in actual distributions without recompilation?
