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.

The point is, they aren't shared. Unity is based on GTK, Ubuntu Phone is based on Qt.

And to a user or a developer that is relevant because?

Because developer doesn't want to deal with 2 separate toolkits to target the system on different form factors.

Developers don't need to use two separated tool kits, they will use Qt for the 3 of them (desktop, phone and tablet), what's ur point?
