Linux Canonical recently announced that they are developing a tablet version of their popular Ubuntu operating system, slated to be released in 2011. This comes hot on the heels of the release of the Apple iPad, and the rumors that HP plans to release a WebOS-based tablet sometime late 2010. However, Canonical's foray into the tablet arena is fundamentally different from both the iPad and a WebOS tablet, and unfortunately reeks of a company failing to learn from their competitors successes and failures.

Thanks for that update. See, this is why we need a thumbs down button for articles to prevent silliness like this type of "reporting" getting spread around... I'm glad that at least the posters on OSNews.com are able to catch these things and tell the rest of us about them--I just wish that there were a way to get such embarrassments off the front page!

This isn't on the front page so why raise that point?
