Ubuntu 12.04 shipping without a terminal

Mark Shuttleworth announced at the 2011 Ubuntu Developer Summit that Ubuntu 12.04 LTS will be the first release to be shipped without a terminal.


“Times have changed,” Shuttleworth remarked, adding “who uses a terminal anymore? That is a relic of an older Linux I don’t want users to be exposed to.”

When pressed to support his claims, Shuttleworth remarked, “It’s my company. I am the decider. Period.”
