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.

Plasma Active has nowhere near the polish that Ubuntu OS seems to have.

And after using KDE, I don't really have faith they'll get there. I don't buy into their premise of Activities. I think they're a stupid idea. Just listen to anyone explaining them.

From what I've seen of Plasma Active it's (in my opinion) slow, ugly, and unpolished. Its weird and amateurish. There's no vision here.

Ubuntu barely has any touch optimized applications at all. I'm not sure what you call polish in this case.
