What is Ubuntu?
Ubuntu is a Linux-based operating system that runs from the desktop, to the cloud, to all your internet connected things in between. Perfect for home users, students and hackers alike, its easy-to-use interface puts you in control of your machine. Users can run Ubuntu on a computer, or in a virtual machine on top of their existing operating system. There are three editions: 'Ubuntu Desktop Edition' for personal computers, the 'Ubuntu Server Edition', and the lightweight 'Ubuntu Core' edition for embedded devices and appliances.
What is Nexus?
The Nexus repository is a repository that facilitates the discovery, access and installation of public artifacts. It supports open source dependencies and references them in Maven-compatible package declarations. The most common use is to resolve a target dependency by hashing a file with a specified MD5 sum and using Nexus to look up the artifact in its local cache or available repositories . It is also possible to combine Maven (and other) metadata with an artifact before publication.
