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.

There is some discussion amongst the qt quick using operating systems to standardize their api's. That would make it a lot easier to target plasma active, ubuntu and Blackberry. Qt 5 is also being developed as a platform for android and ios, so there is hope for a unified development platform. However, other cross platform toolkits end up just sucking on every platform. So be careful what you wish for.
