Coming Soon: Ubuntu For Mobiles, Tablets
Fix the Desktop Interface (Unity) first.
This is great
I think it should create a separate segment rather then challenge Android which I dont think is very smart.
added this to my port-and-experiment list
as if we did not see that coming,
and as lfc said, many things are broken in the current unity, including some issues with opera not rendering properly when used with compositing.
Fix?? I wish they remove it completely!! I hate it
Aren't both iOS and android both based on linux? What is this the stock bare bone version?
P.S. I have online used ubuntu for an hour at most
OS X is based on BSD, iOS is based on OS X.
Android was based on Linux kernel, but I think it got deviated from the main branch.
I did not think I would hate Unity so much. But I suppose trying to clone the Mac look got into the devs head. Gnome was so much better. Wish they don't use Unity in the mobile version.
I don;t know why but after ubuntu 10.10, the whole OS got sluggy. And the unity interface is annoying.
Anyways, hope Ubuntu mobiles provide cheaper pricing.
It's not that bad really, a few modifications (such as disabling autohide of the launcher, reducing its size, etc.), make it at least as useable as Gnome 2 if not better.
They only need to fix those usability issues, and they're done.
I wish Gnome 3 was used by Ubuntu, potentially it's an enviroment perfectly suited for tablets.
Sounds really good.
Open source ftw!!
So the days for symbian, iOS and all that pricey things are numbered......
There are still good thing remain in world like free software.......
Android will live, and it is there to live long (at least for next 10-20 years)
Correct me if I'm wrong but is android the most power hungry mobile OS?
Also I think this was featured in Digit mag where cell phones in the future (supposedly) will be sold blank without any OS and the user can add any OS he wants later on.
I hope this is the first step towards it
Lets hope that assumption come true(mobile come with out OS)
Mobile without OS? Do I want to dual boot my phone?
