Building your next Ubuntu-based PC is going to be a lot easier from now on.
Canonical have today launched the largest online list of Linux-compatible PC components, featuring over 1300 certified different components from 161 different manufacturers.
Although primarily aimed at ODM’s – Original Design Manufacturers – the comprehensive database will also prove useful to home PC builders and buyers looking to ensure device compatibility out of the box on the their purchase.
Canonical Platform Services Manager Victor Palau said of the launch:-
"There has not been a comprehensive, up-to-date freely available catalog like this for a long time.
By making this open and easily searchable we want to speed the component selection for Ubuntu machines, and allow us and our partner manufacturers to focus on the value-added user experience."
Canonical launched a similar database for Ubuntu-certified systems later last year.
