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.

I have a Nokia N9 and it uses X.org, and I must say it is no slouch when it comes to smoothness. Especially after the "FasterN9" package, which tweaks the 'niceness' of the priorities to make things snappier.
