Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Expected, but still insanely cool: Canonical has just announced Ubuntu for phones. This is a new mobile phone operating system, with its own user interface and development platform. It's built around Qt5 and QML, and the interface reminds me of MeeGo on the N9. It's supposed to be on the shelves in early 2014, but the developer preview is out today.

Well, it is not Google who wants absolute control, it is more an Apple thing. Go? Seriously, you think they created a language not because it was some programmer pet project but because they want to control their destiny, which wouldn't have been possible with other languages, such as, eeeer...
