Likewise, the Ubuntu Core can be installed in the Raspberry Pi. It is the tiny, transactional version of the Ubuntu for a lot of devices and large container deployments. It runs a new breed of the super-secure and remotely upgradeable Linux application packages known as the snaps and it is trusted by the leading lot players, from the chipset vendors to the device makers and system integrators. It is faster more reliable, with the stronger security guarantees for applications and users compared to the traditional Linux distribution. Applications are distributed through the snaps and a simple application packaging system which makes it easy for the developers to build and distribute the applications across many Linux distributions from the public or private app store.
