Cloud9 with and without Amazon and how to run Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - Bionic


Hello everyone,

first of all, i’m a big fan of Cloud9! Thanks for this great product. Since it has been bought by Amazon i’m confused if the “old” Cloud9 will still exist in the future (i’m asking because i’d like to sign-up and use it instead of the Amazon hustle).

I’ve tried the “Amazon” version and it seems that it only runs on “Amazon Linux” - for my projects i need Ubuntu 18.04 - is there any way i get it with the non-amazon Version?

In short

  1. Will C9 without Amazon continue to exist and will it be updated and developed in the future
  2. Is there a way to run an instance with Ubuntu 18.04

Thanks a lot
