Ubuntu Gives Up on Convergence

A blog post by Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth dashes the dream of PCs and smartphones running on the same version of Linux-- the company is going to stop working on Ubuntu for phones and tablets.

Instead, the next version of Ubuntu (18.04 LTS) will shift back to the GNOME desktop environment.

“We will continue to produce the most usable open source desktop in the world, to maintain the existing LTS releases, to work with our commercial partners to distribute that desktop, to support our corporate customers who rely on it, and to delight the millions of IoT and cloud developers who innovate on top of it,” Shuttleworth writes. "The choice, ultimately, is to invest in the areas which are contributing to the growth of the company."

Gartner: Intelligence and Analytics to Reach $18bn in 2017

According to Gartner, global business intelligence (BI) and analytics software revenues are to reach $18.3 billion in 2017-- a 7.3% increase from 2016, before growing to $22.8bn by end 2020.

The analyst says modern BI and analytics is expanding more rapidly than the overall market, offsetting declines in traditional BI spending. The modern BI and analytics platform emerged recently to meet new requirements for accessibility, agility and deeper analytical insight, shifting the market from IT-led, system-of-record reporting to business-led, agile analytics including self-service.

Mind, modern BI and analytics growth will eventually decelerate-- from 63.6% in 2015 to 19% in 2020. Such decline reflects data and analytics becoming mainstream, since pricing pressures will affect revenues despite growth in terms of seat expansion.

Windos 10 Cloud OS Leaks

Twitter user adguard (@rgadguard) leaks what one can describe as a more lightweight version of Windows 10-- Windows 10 Cloud, the Microsoft take on the Google's ChromeOS.

Curious users who took the risk and installed the leaked ISO file discovered a stripped-down version of the OS able to only run Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps, something reminiscent of the short-lived Windows RT. The UI looks very similar to that of regular Windows 10, with a task bar and integrated Cortana-powered search field. However, attempts at installing Win32 applications brings a message stating the OS "was made to help protect you and your device by exclusively running Windows Store apps."

Windows 10 Arrives on Qualcomm Chips

Microsoft takes another stab at putting Windows on ARM-based chipsets-- a collaboration with Qualcomm brings about a full version of Windows 10 running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor.

Machines running on such Snapdragon CPUs can support x86 Win 32 and universal Windows apps, including Adobe Photoshop, Windows 10 games and, of course, the likes of Office. A demo of the Windows 10 Enterprise Edition emulation running on the ARM-based Qualcomm CPU appears to be as smooth as expected, and can lead to what the two companies insist on calling "cellular PCs."

“We are excited to bring Windows 10 to the ARM ecosystem with Qualcomm Technologies,” Microsoft Windows and Devices Group VP Terry Myerson says. “We continue to look for ways to empower our customers to create wherever they are. Bringing Windows 10 to life with a range of thin, light, power-efficient and always-connected devices, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon platform, is the next step in delivering the innovations our customers love-- touch, pen, Windows Hello, and more-- anytime, anywhere.”
