20 Ubuntu

Underpinning the philosophy of Ubuntu is the concept of the relatedness of humanity, coupled with the harmonisation of the concepts of atomism and holism that we are only now starting to appreciate—even as a new understanding for quantum physics. Ubuntu puts the emphasis on humanity, and the connectivity between all of us, together with our environment. We open our doors and welcome our kind, graciously and humbly, wherever we may be, to share what we have, to bring all of us together, to treasure this beautiful world and its beautiful people.

It is with this will to share that the Ubuntu computer operating system embodies, building on the foundation that is GNU/Linux, to share for all humanity. Everyone must have the permission to freely welcome, to freely share, to freely learn, to freely contribute. And that is Ubuntu.

MLHub runs on Ubuntu LTS (Long Term Supported). Ubuntu can be readily installed on Windows 10 within the Windows Subsystem for Linux. It is also available as the operating system of choice from the Raspberry Pi to any desktop or laptop where it is easy to install. It is also available as the operating system of a virtual machine, from the Hyper-V gallery on Windows, for example (enable Hyper-V and choose Ubuntu). For MacOS X one can use Parallels or Virtual Box to install Ubuntu. It is also probably the most widely deployed operating system on cloud servers.

The various options for installing Ubuntu are covered in the following sections of this chapter, finishing with the installation of MLHub itself in Section 20.5.

All of the curated models that are registered with MLHub are tested against Ubuntu LTS.
