Linux Canonical recently announced that they are developing a tablet version of their popular Ubuntu operating system, slated to be released in 2011. This comes hot on the heels of the release of the Apple iPad, and the rumors that HP plans to release a WebOS-based tablet sometime late 2010. However, Canonical's foray into the tablet arena is fundamentally different from both the iPad and a WebOS tablet, and unfortunately reeks of a company failing to learn from their competitors successes and failures.

Not much to say, the linked article is a pile of crap. Doubt anyone will think opposite. Sure Ubuntu tablet might not work, but not for the reasons given.

The reasons given are just 1 reason "you're not Apple it cannot work", that's just laughable
