Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "The first computers were gigantic, filling rooms and requiring constant care and maintenance. [...] The computer stayed on the desk until the laptop computer, a smaller, more portable, but just as powerful machine, made it nearly obsolete. And then, the iPhone was released, followed shortly after by Android and the Palm WebOS, and the next step in computing was clear. What we did not immediately understand was if mobile computing was an accessory, or a replacement, for the traditional desktop machines." Jon-Buys at Ostatic believes the phone-becomes-computer paradigm is the next step.

Ubuntu on phone?

Why would anyone want Ubuntu on a phone? Not even bashing it because it is Ubuntu, but why would anyone want it? Android is optimized significantly better for mobile devices than Ubuntu. It has a gigantic app selection. It has a much bigger company behind it offering that guarantee that Android won't go bankrupt. It has massive vendor support. Same goes for iOS, minus the vendor support. I don't see why anyone would go for Ubuntu unless you just like to tinker with your phone. Android and iOS make much more sense for business.
