Ubuntu is incorporating WebApps feature to its next version of OS. They are integrating this feature in the Ubutu Desktop to make the dying Linux Desktop live again. Already few months ago, cloud service has been featured in the Desktop. The feature will introduce popular Internet services and Websites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and many more as desktop applications.


Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical announced the news yesterday at OSCon 1012 at Portland, OR. Canonical is the mother company of Ubuntu. OSCon 1012 will end today 20th July and started on 16th July. OSCON is happening now at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland.

Though WebApps will be featured fully in the next Ubuntu release 12.10 in October but users can have this in the current version 12.04 in the next update according to Ubuntu’s community manager, Jono Bacon. So far 40 WebApps are there in the market. The source code will be available on the Canonical Launchpad (https://launchpad.net/) project management service. The feature also has an application programming interface (API) and an integration script engine for users to make their own desktop applications.

After cloud service, Ubuntu is introducing WebApps, feels like they want to compete with Windows 8, Mac OS X Lion or Google Chrome. It’s interesting to see whether they can really fight with these giants in this booming WebOS industry with their little but loyal users. Already Linux users are reacting on this. What do you say?
