We have just published the 15.04 snappy image and will also publish a 16.04 LTS version for this device when it is released in the next few months. As the device is on a three year guarantee lifecycle, having the long term support release will make it a trusted development platform for years to come.

A background on the Intel® NUC; they are mini PCs built with small packaging (190mm or 115mm * 116mm * 40mm) particularly suited for embedded use cases. Their small size, low consumption, fanless operations and low cost make them particularly strong candidates for digital display or retail kiosks. Combined with Ubuntu Core this creates opportunities across digital display and retail kiosks in particular. For example your preferred shop’s till could also double up as a bluetooth beacon, an advertising screen, a people counting device, just by installing a few apps on it.
