|Expertly Optimized and Supported
When the upstream proposes an update to the Kernel, Desktop, or Video Drivers, the Focus Team runs extensive tests to make sure the changes work on your system. If we find an issue, we work with KDE, Kubuntu, Ubuntu, and other teams to help fix it before a release. Actions taken include submitting and tracking bugs, providing acceptance reports, creating feature proposals, developing code changes, and assembling kernel patches.
Kernels + Devices
The Focus Team runs extensive automated and manual tests when the upstream proposes a kernel update. We check many external and internal devices, connectors, and usage scenarios. Models are tested for a minimum of 3 years after last sale.
Desktop + Apps
The Kubuntu Focus Team runs extensive automated and user-acceptance tests when the upstream proposes an update to GPU drivers. They also coordinate the integration of CUDA, ML, and AI libraries with the official Ubuntu GPU drivers.
