People who are in the know when it comes to Ubuntu are familiar with their fairly regular alphabetical bi-yearly updates. This all may be changing as Ubuntu's founder and CEO Mark Shuttleworth is reportedly pondering daily updates to the operating system.

During a conference call last month, Shuttleworth is quoted as stating that daily updates would help Ubuntu "keep pace with an increasingly complex software and platform ecosystem as Ubuntu goes on more devices and syncs up Android and iPhones." Daily updates, while a ton of work for the developers, may also keep the OS up to date as more and more mobile platforms take advantage of the simple and lightweight functionality of Ubuntu.

 

Shuttlesworth went on to state, "In an Internet-oriented world, we need to be able to release something every day. That's an area we will put a lot of work into in the next five years."
