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.

This is pretty much what goes around in my head.

Regardless of the OS used, i also think its a great idea to have everything for your computing needs in your pocket. Docking it on whatever you work on (and how about you can upgrade your docking bay just like a regular desktop or have a variant that is upgradetable for our workstation enthusiasts like me).

In all honesty it would be awesome. Ubuntu as mobile OS seems fit for the task in its current idea. I think there is space for improvement. Modern Smartphones have quadcore cpus and enough ram to actually be productive with it.
