    Can Ubuntu Make an Impact on Tablets and/or Smartphones?

    Fairly recently, Canonical announced it would like to get into the tablet and smartphone arena with Ubuntu Linux. As if it weren't late enough already, Canonical has said it needs to focus its efforts on releasing Ubuntu 12.04 before it heads into new territory.

    Do you think it's too little too late? The new Unity interface that Ubuntu uses certainly looks tablet-friendly, but even Microsoft is having trouble competing with Apple and Google in this domain.

    Here's a link to the Canonical story

    A pruned Windows is what most of us want. Android is outstanding as far as it goes but the functionality of a netbook in a tablet would be really nice.
