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[3]: Steam on ARM?

That makes sense. I've noticed that games created with the Unity platform tend to port easily to all three major OSes, as it is a very high level platform. It seems that, at least for Source Engine games, it's a bit more complicated:

I would imagine a CPU architecture change would be another, deeper level when it comes to porting.
