Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "The first computers were gigantic, filling rooms and requiring constant care and maintenance. [...] The computer stayed on the desk until the laptop computer, a smaller, more portable, but just as powerful machine, made it nearly obsolete. And then, the iPhone was released, followed shortly after by Android and the Palm WebOS, and the next step in computing was clear. What we did not immediately understand was if mobile computing was an accessory, or a replacement, for the traditional desktop machines." Jon-Buys at Ostatic believes the phone-becomes-computer paradigm is the next step.

Why would anyone want Ubuntu on a phone?


Moreover, why would anybody want to run it on the desktop? ;) Ok, that might sound like I'm trolling, but if I don't want to run it on the desktop now, I sure as hell won't want to just because it's on a phone. They are trying to cross over into a market where they might have 2% penetration at best.
