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.

I doubt you even looked at PA seriously.

Of course I've locked, that's why I'm making such statements.

Does they warrant a serious look? Certainly not from the videos or screen caps I've seen. Certainly not from an architectural POV or as a new and radical paradigm.

It looks like a worse off, less attractive version of what everyone else is doing.

I feel like KDE is an organization with 2000 names for 1999 useless things. Plasma, Activities, Phonon, Solid, KEverything, who the heck understands this?

Qt and QML are great foundations. The rest of the stack upwards in KDE is complete, utter, garbage.

You cannot seriously expect any reasonable consumer to feel at home with Plasma Active.
