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.

RE[2]: Steam on ARM?

Member since:

It depends on how much low level code they use, and on the presence of ported middleware. I think.

Certainly not simple, but not impossible either.

The harder issue is probably performance tuning. From working on the Windows Store, ARM has difference performance characteristics from x86 in different areas. Its a challenge at times.
