Some announcements from MapR about “MapR and Canonical bringing Hadoop Support to Ubuntu“:
First, MapR is partnering with Canonical, the organization behind the Ubuntu
operating system, to package and make available for download an integrated
offering of MapR Distibution with Ubuntu. The free MapR M3 Edition includes
HBase, Pig, Hive, Mahout, Cascading, Sqoop, Flume and other Hadoop support
tools. MapR is the only distribution that enables Linux applications and
commands to access data directly in the cluster via the NFS interface that
is available with all MapR Editions.
As far as I know, Apache Hadoop works just fine on Ubuntu. And there was already a partnership between Cloudera and Canonical to bring Hadoop to Ubuntu. So, I guess my title might be more accurate.
