Samsung closes Linux on DeX project

At the end of last year, Samsung released the Linux on DeX app for smartphones and tablets, which

allows you to run Ubuntu desktop operating system on them. In less than a year, the company decided to close this project.

What happened

Samsung sent to all test participantsLinux on DeX emails announcing the termination of beta testing of the application. Android 10 devices will no longer support this software.

“Thank you for supporting Linux on DeX Beta. Unfortunately, we are announcing the end of the beta program and the termination of its support in future OS releases. The ability to launch Ubuntu will not be supported on Android 10 Beta, ”Samsung said.

Why they decided to close the project, the company did not specify, but Linux on DeX was not particularly successful.

In any case, now lovers of Linux on DeX (if any) will have to stay on Android Pie.
