Amazon Web Services (AWS) users get access to the popular Linux distro via virtual desktop.

Ubuntu WorkSpaces on AWS, a fully managed virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), is now generally available on the public cloud platform.

This marks the first time that a virtual Linux OS desktop has been available on AWS, which has previously only offered iOS and Windows operating systems.

Ubuntu has consistently counted as among the most popular Linux distros, and Canonical, the developer behind Ubuntu, says the new tie-up gives developers access to a wide choice of open source tools and libraries in fields like data science, artificial intelligence and machine learning, cloud, and internet-of-things.
