    Ubuntu operating system for LG TVs?

    Hello

    I have seen on youtube some guys showing Linux on tv's.

    they are using a specific kernel:

    Would you know if Ubuntu could or will be released to be installed on TV too?

    Greetings

    I would say that the answer is NO. It may be possible in the future to buy a smart TV and find that it has a user interface that is just like Unity on our desktop PCs and smart phones and tablets. But a Ubuntu image that can be downloaded and installed on a TV? NO. Canonical is clearly not intending to do that.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.
