Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Expected, but still insanely cool: Canonical has just announced Ubuntu for phones. This is a new mobile phone operating system, with its own user interface and development platform. It's built around Qt5 and QML, and the interface reminds me of MeeGo on the N9. It's supposed to be on the shelves in early 2014, but the developer preview is out today.

Does it extend to anyone who can buy MS rights over C# in the future?

I'm not entirely sure and I'm not particularly good at dissecting legal documents.

That'd probably be a good question for someone on the Mono team though.

But the Community Promise is a framework they use to cover other standards there, some funnily not viewed in such a controversial light as C#. I don't think it can be that people feel safe to implement those standards and not C#, given they're under the same promise.
