Good news for Ubuntu users! The publisher Canonical has just announced some changes in its Ubuntu Pro offer. Now everyone can enjoy extended support for free within the limit of 5 machines.
Linux distribution “Ubuntu” is maintained and developed by Canonical company. The distribution itself is available for free, but in parallel Canonical offers paid services, including Ubuntu Pro.

Canonical evolves its Ubuntu Pro offer, which allows users to benefit from it for free within the limit of 5 machineswhether computers or serversand whether for a personal or commercial use. Mark Shuttleworth, CEO de Canonical, précise : “Ever since we launched Ubuntu LTS, with five years of free security coverage for the core operating system, our business customers have asked us to cover more and more of the open-source world under private commercial agreements. . Today, we’re happy to bring the benefits of all that work, for free, to anyone in the world with a free personal Ubuntu Pro subscription.“
Ubuntu Pro allows you to have security patches more quickly when a security flaw is discovered, in particular to have better protection. This applies to critical, high or medium faults, with a level of responsiveness that can vary. Thousands of applications are supported as part of the Ubuntu Pro program: Ansible, Apache Tomcat, Apache Zookeeper, Docker, Drupal, Nagios, Node.js, phpMyAdmin, Puppet, PowerDNS, Python 2, Redis, Rust, WordPress, etc
“Canonical has a proven track record of delivering security updates for the mainline operating system Ubuntu for 18 years, with critical CVEs patched in less than 24 hours on average.” – So with Ubuntu Pro more packages are supported.
