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.

Exactly!

I do not want to hamper the excitement for Ubuntu everywhere but to me it is another vaporware until I see it performing. It is really hard to get a grasp on what it can or can not do.

I have been burned many times by Nokia with nice teasers of new platforms (meego, maemo, symbian) to have any excitement anymore. ;)

Here is hoping they pull it off.


Exactly what? And are we still talking about Ubuntu TV?

Unless I'm missing your point, your comment doesn't seem to follow on from mine.

You said "the only Ubuntu project that I'm interested in is Ubuntu TV"

He said exactly to your lack of excitement about this announcement and then gave statements about why he isn't excited about the announcement so his response mostly does flow within the conversation.

As for Ubuntu TV, its main appeal just seems to be as an alternative to MythTV as a DVR (which TiVo may have patents on). With over the top stuff there are already a whole bunch of other decent platforms available or planned with Roku, Google/Apple TV, Ouya, Wii U, Boxee, Raspberry Pi running XBMC, Pocket TV, numerous smart TV's, and PS4 and Xbox 720 on the way etc.
