The bottom edge is the most natural one to use, and Ubuntu has given it to developers to make the most of. Some design guidance establishes a framework for evaluating your creativity, but it leaves a very wide degree of creative freedom and we're already seeing a load of superb interactions coming to the fore in core and community apps. Have fun with yours!
The latest official OpenStack survey found that 55% of production deployments of OpenStack are on Ubuntu, and that Ubuntu is even more popular for the larger deployments. As the world moves from scale-up (Solaris, Red Hat) to scale-out computing Google-style, it is also moving to platforms like Ubuntu that are easier to deploy, manage and support economically at scale.
The majority of projects running on public clouds today use Ubuntu as their operating system. That makes it much easier to find information about how to get things done, much easier to find solutions to common problems, and much easier to find the talent you need to shift from a traditional IT model to a IAAS-friendly architecture.
