Ubuntu  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").
With an estimated global usage of more than 12 million users, Ubuntu is designed primarily for desktop use, although netbook and server editions exist as well. Web statistics suggest that Ubuntu's share of Linux desktop usage is about 50%, and indicate upward trending usage as a web server.
Ubuntu is sponsored by the UK-based company Canonical Ltd.
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).
