No, sorry Ms. Lorna, humble me wasn’t talking about yore song. Beside, Microsoft ‘n Google ‘n Canonical are not in the same league with you, and have a looooooooooooooooog way to go just to get to the closet door where yore guitar resides at times.

Anyway, seems that Microsoft ‘n Canonical have been doing all sorts of stuff together recently, and just read where Google is also working with Canonical…on more developer stuff, I think:

Google has some great news for Linux developers

  • Flutter support comes to Linux and the Snap Store
  • Google has revealed it is teaming up with Canonical to bring Linux desktop app support to Flutter, its cross-platform open-source UI framework.
  • Google says that 500,000 developers are currently using Flutter, built on its Dart programming language, each month, and that 80,000 apps built on the platform have been published to Google Play so far.

Well, never heard of Flutter (that I know of!?), but it’s apparently popular with a lot of developers, e.g. ‘two million developers use the platform since its initial release‘ in December of 2018. Has Mint Linux missed ‘Da Boat again? I have the feeling that many Linux ‘Toy‘ Distros are going to keep falling further behind over the next few years, as the pace of Technology speeds up some more. Technology waits for no one and nothing

Rule of Thumb – if you can’t install Ubuntu on it, then you can’t install any Linux Distro on it.
