    Microsoft will buy Ubuntu ?

    SUSE, openSUSE, Debian and Kali all run in the Windows Subsystem for Linux. Maybe they will all sell out.

    Or maybe it is Microsoft that has already sold out, considering that at one time Linux was anathema to Microsoft.

    Ubuntu is sponsored by a company called Canonical which is a privately owned company registered with the United Kingdom's Companies House department. It is within the bounds of possibility that the owner of Canonical or his heirs (upon his death) may sell Canonical one day. On the other hand Ubuntu is Open Source software. Even if Canonical decided to stop developing Ubuntu anyone interested in continuing development would be free to take the source code and continue development.

    This is what has happened to the desktop environment and user interface that Ubuntu was developing for smart phones and tablet PCs. Ubuntu Touch is now developed by a group of developers called Ubports.

    Whether a completely community developed Ubuntu will still be called Ubuntu is anybody's guess.

    If the community were keeping it going because Canonical had spontaneously combusted, it would probably still be called Ubuntu. If it was a hard fork because Canonical had swerved evil for some reason it couldn't be called Ubuntu: that, and the names of the flavours, and some other things Canonical have done, are trademarked.

    Microsoft has to negotiate its purchase of TikTok before it can do anything else.
