Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu

Canonical has just signed its first deal to supply a smartphone with its mobile operating system, Canonical founder and product strategy leader Mark Shuttleworth revealed in an interview here at the LeWeb conference. He wouldn't say which company has agreed to use the Linux-based OS, but said it will be offered on high-end phones in 2014.

Good news.

Good for Ubuntu

I'm really rooting for Ubuntu to pull off their plans. I'd love to move to an Ubuntu phone. If they can ever pull off Shuttleworth's vision, I believe all of the naysayers of Unity will say, "Oh. I get it." Don't get me wrong. I'm not a fan of Unity either. But, I believe it's part of the big picture. So, I tolerate it. For years now, Shuttleworth seems to make decisions that frustrate end users. It would be awesome to see it all pay off in the near future.

It only pays off if it doesn't frustrate end users...

If they ever reach OS nirvana, the frustration will have been worth it.
