Canonical的AdGuard Home Ubuntu设备是其设备等级的新成员。 使用此产品，用户可以快速实施现成的解决方案，以在家庭网络的网络级别上阻止令人讨厌的内容。 这样做只需要下载，安装和启动新发布的精简版Ubuntu映像，并预先安装和预先配置AdGuard Home服务。 不过，用这种说法来表达这种发展的更好方法是，Ubuntu正在构建某些东西，并且它只是奠定了另一个坚固的砖块。 现在的建筑物可能比较简陋（仅是基础），但它拥有的潜力比用户最初意识到的更大。
Ubuntu Appliances是新兴基础的核心，恰当地命名为Ubuntu Core，这是一种精简的Ubuntu操作系统，专为IoT用例而设计。用户可以独立运行的Ubuntu Core和Ubuntu Appliance的区别在于，每个设备都预装了一项特色服务，并且所有必需的程序都通过Snaps容器化安装机制进行安装和管理。 通过这种结构，如果我们借用后闪存，后引导和后配置的意义，这种设备被设计为“开箱即用”，就可以直接使用。用户将需要启动设备设备并执行少量的本地管理，为设备提供具有静态LAN IP地址的Internet连接，如果没有，则设置一个Ubuntu One帐户。稍后会出现一些Web GUI提示，并且用户已启动并正在运行。 然后，Ubuntu完成剩下的工作，这包括很多繁重的工作。只要设备可以访问Internet，它们的更新寿命就会达到10年。如果一切都按计划进行，则用户无需重新考虑设备，除非他们想更改其配置。即使如此，他们所要做的就是进入Web管理GUI，切换一些开关，然后关闭选项卡。
原文：Canonical's AdGuard Home Ubuntu Appliance is a new addition to the ranks of its appliances. With this offering, users can quickly implement a ready-made solution for blocking bothersome content at the network level on a home network. Doing so involves no more than downloading, installing, and booting the newly released lean Ubuntu image with the AdGuard Home service pre-installed and pre-configured.
A better way to phrase this development, though, is that Ubuntu is building something, and it just laid another sturdy brick. The edifice may be humble (and little more than a foundation) now, but it holds more potential than users may at first realize.
At the core of the emerging foundation that is Ubuntu Appliances is the aptly named Ubuntu Core, a slimmed-down Ubuntu operating system crafted with the IoT use case in mind. What distinguishes Ubuntu Core, which users can run as a standalone, and Ubuntu Appliances, is that each appliance comes preloaded with a featured service, and all the necessary programs are installed and managed via the Snaps containerized installation mechanism.
With this structure, appliances are designed to just work "out of the box," if we borrow that brick-and-mortar paradigm in the sense of post-flashing, post-booting, and post-configuration. Users will need to boot the appliance device and perform a token amount of local administration, provide it with an Internet connection with a static LAN IP address, and set up an Ubuntu One account if they don't have one. A few web GUI prompts later, and the user is up and running.
Ubuntu then does the rest, and that encompasses a lot of heavy lifting. Appliances will update themselves for a 10-year lifespan as long as they have Internet access. If all goes according to plan, users shouldn't have to give a second thought to their appliance unless they want to change its configuration. Even then, all they have to do is enter the Web administration GUI, toggle a few switches, and close the tab.
