Happy New Year everyone!
The year is off to quite a fun start. You've likely seen the announcements about the Ubuntu Phone (without needing any robot). Finally. Ignore the fact that a lot of "the press" (that is sponsored by competitors - check the ads) isn't quite getting the significance of this. (That's a topic for a future post.)
For us, here's Mark explaining it all in a very clear way:
So, now we have a phone and a tablet, with the exact same interfaces that match the desktop. And soon a TV. No need to learn new interfaces across devices. One interface that spans everything. One project that spans everything.
Please tell all your friends, especially those who think Ubuntu is just software. Heck, call a reporter and explain what Ubuntu really represents.
Randall's prediction: 2013 will be the year we introduce people to systems that work for people, and not vice-versa.
