Add support for Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS +

Ubuntu is so much easier to handle than CentOS or Redhat and it just works great. It would be nice to have official support for this OS.

    It took us years to get CentOS officially supported!
    And it is a lot of work to get a new platform supported and keep it supported!

    In case of CentOS it is basically the same from source code than RHEL which is once of the supported enterprise Linux versions.

    So it was easy for IBM/HCL to add it as a supported platform from the technical side in a certain way as described in this technote:

    Ubuntu LTS is a stable release but it is quite different than SLES and RHEL from the release.

    I don't agree that IBM/HCL should spend time on adding another Linux platform!

    CentOS isn't that difficult to install and manage. I agree that there isn't a great admin UI like we have in SLES but it's a great enterprise ready OS!

    IMHO the time and effort is better invested in other areas!
