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.

Open development means shit if the end product sucks. Its just more chefs in the kitchen.

Products need a strong sense of direction, something develop by committee decidedly lacks.

Closed development means nothing if users will think that enforced decisions are bad. You can argue both ways, but I'm strongly for open development.

To quote Jaron Lanier

There are other cases that involve creativity and imagination. A crowd process generally fails in these cases. The phrase “Design by Committee” is treated as derogatory for good reason. That is why a collective of programmers can copy UNIX but cannot invent the iPhone.
