    I am loving it already. The more OS we have to play with the merrier. The trailer looks interesting. Looking forward to its launch.

    Yeah, I’m excited by this news but I agree with martinkem on OEM support. If Canonical cannot get enough phone makers, especially like Samsung to support this OS, it may never succeed and I’m praying that it does succeed so that other platforms will emulate their vision.

    Another important thing that will help the OS garner traction faster is for the OEMs to ship the docking station alongside with the phone at launch rather than launching the phone first with the docking station coming as an additional hardware at a cost or even not being available at launch time. I’m also a huge fan of Ubuntu, though I’m not very pleased with the desktop environment starting with Ubuntu version 12.04.

    personally I don’t think there is space for yet another mobile OS in the market, Linux barely got enough attention in the PC sector what makes them think going mobile is going help either. They need more OEM backing if they are going to make any headway.
    until then my opinion is that this is just DOA project

    Sadly know very little about the platform- “Ubuntu”. I recently just wrapped my head around the name (sounds like Caveman speak- Oonga Boonga thinz)

    While I haven’t totally gotten over the Android experience, I’m mighty glad that 2013 is shaping up to be a fierce year in The War of Platforms.

    May have to buy a new piggy-bank for BB 10 or Ubuntu or whichever OS turns out to be hardcore.

    In the mean time *resumes Contract Killer 2 on Android Tab*

    Ubuntu will be competing directly (it seems) with Windows Phone 8 in terms of the compatibility between phone and pc. Neither iOS nor Android have managed to do this to the extent envisioned by these two.

    Just curious as to how it will work in terms of apps. Not been too impressed by some of the Ubuntu pickings to date.

    Having Used Their Os Before and Being The Third Most Used OS in The World After Mac And Windows. It Looks Very Promising I Especially Love The Fact That The Whole PC is Controlled From a Hand Held Device. The Best Thing About It Is That It Is an Open Source Software Which Means Developer Who Are Getting Bored With Android Will Be Entralled With It, Also Other Linux Developer Can Just Build Right Untop Of It To Create Their Own Mobile OS(Imagine Linux Mint On a Phone #Crazy) And Caonical Might Just Be The King Linux Distro After Being Ursurped By Linux Mint Which Is A Very Intuitive Linux Distro. The Best Part Is That It’s an African Company That’s Coming Up With This!!

    its sounds promising, if it could over something similar what Android platform is offering, it might be a good competitor, many people don’t really use Ubuntu on PC so it might not get the interest of many smartphone users.

    The UI is very interesting. Here’s a trailer for those interested.

    Its once core platform spread around Desktop, TV, phone and Tablet (yet to be announced). I’m already running Ubuntu on my laptop and the Ubuntu OS is supposed to be able to run on any modern Android Phone (i’m sure the xda folks would jump on that ASAP). In a year or so, I could be running Ubuntu on all my devices from phone to PC!. How awesome is that?

    NOTE: In case you didn’t know, and couldn’t tell from this comment, I’m a huge Ubuntu fan boy 😀
