Ubuntu[3][4] is a computer operating system based on the Debian distribution and distributed as free and open source software. It is named after the Southern African philosophy of Ubuntu ("humanity towards others").[5]

With an estimated global usage of more than 12 million users,[6] Ubuntu is designed primarily for desktop use, although netbook and server editions exist as well.[7] Web statistics suggest that Ubuntu's share of Linux desktop usage is about 50%,[8][9] and indicate upward trending usage as a web server.[10]

Ubuntu is sponsored by the UK-based company Canonical Ltd.

Target

Ubuntu v7.10 i386 builds are available for LIO from the Ubuntu repository.

The Ubuntu binary package names are target-utils and target-modules for binary packages. target-source requires module-assistant to build the kernel module. Building the target-utils source currently requires checking out the code and using dpkg-buildpackage from trunk/target (see README for more information).
