How will this idea be used?

Internally we are shifting towards Ubuntu as the preferred OS for our Linux platforms (previously SUSE, OEL/RHEL) and CD is our preferred file transfer mechanism. To align with such a shift we need CD to be supported on this OS so we can continue to use this technology.

What is your industry? Automotive

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed your request to add Ubuntu as a certified operating system for Connect:Direct with my development teams and have gauged the broader market interest over the last several months. Unfortunately we have not seen enough interest to invest in certifying and supporting Ubuntu at this time. Because of that I must unfortunately decline this request. I appreciate you taking the time to use the tool to log this request and I'd encourage you to use the tool in the future if you think of other things we should consider.
