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.

They are further ahead architecturally. See https://plus.google.com/u/0/107555540696571114069/posts/HSL2C21DJt7

Why? Just because one of the plasma developers say so?

His words are verifiable. Ubuntu for tablets (the one which runs on Nexus 7) is not the same as Ubuntu Phone underneath.

That may be true, but Plasma Active isn't usable in its current state. The on-screen keyboard doesn't work properly, for instance.

I agree that it's not usable yet in various areas and needs work. I was talking about architecture and foundation which are arguably even more important than the good looking end result.
