About Us

OMG! Ubuntu!OMG! Ubuntu! is an online news site covering Ubuntu and related activities in the surrounding Linux and open-source eco-systems in an approachable and engaging way. 

We write about more just Ubuntu and related projects to cover items of interest in the wider technology sector within the context of Ubuntu, relaying what those changes may mean for the OS, the community and its users.

  • We give readers timely news on the latest Ubuntu developments
  • We help readers understand changes and how they relate to back to them
  • We show readers how to do more with Ubuntu, Unity and other desktop environments

We’ve been running for over five years. In that time we have seen  mammoth shifts in technology, much less Ubuntu. When we started Android and iPhone were barely formed (much less shipping); “cloud computing” was a buzz word and Ubuntu was for the most part a simple desktop and server operating system.

Today? Ubuntu is available on phones and tablets. “Convergence” is the new buzz-word. Cloud computing is intrinsic to technological development, with Ubuntu Core helping lead to the charge in the Internet of Things.

Our Readers Rule

Our readers have a passion for Ubuntu, for open-source and for being at the cutting edge of technology and playing active roles in the shifting trends of digital sociology.

They are students, they are gamers, they are developers, and they are regular home users wanting to learn more.

To feed their appetites for “what’s next” we bring them timely news articles, useful guides, tips and tutorials, and plenty more besides (hint: it often includes cats).

We don’t just cover the latest software releases or track the main Ubuntu news. We dig deeper. We take the technical and make it digestible. If we write about something it’s because we know our readers are going to care about hearing it.

Even at the best of times the world of Ubuntu, Linux and open-source can be confusing or present difficulties in understanding.

But not on OMG! Ubuntu!
