Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu After desktops and phones, Ubuntu is now bringing its Linux distribution to tablets. Coming Thursday, preview images for Google's Nexus tablets will be released, so we can all get a good long look at what Canonical is cooking up. They've published a YouTube video which details all that Ubuntu has to offer for tablets, and to be honest, it's looking quite good.

Leery but hopeful

I've been a bit down on Canonical's mobile offerings since they seem to be missing visible source code, are being developed secretly somewhere, and have no hardware partners.

But I'm hopeful it'll turn out nice... at a minimum, having an alternate hobbyist OS is cool. At best, they might actually pick up some hardware and capture some of the market... but an increasingly fractured "native apps" landscape makes me worried as a developer. Sigh, can't win. ;)
