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.

Ha ha, can't agree more. Sailfish (to me) looks so much better and has so much more potential as well. Hell, even if you skip over Sailfish's UI, the Mer core is completely open source and you could (if you were so inclined) develop your own UI.
