    Re: Ubuntu's Top-Secret New Product

    By the announcement, I'd say it's a tablet, or maybe a touchscreen ultrabook. Somebody said it was a product in "a new space" and both tablets and ultrabooks are regarded as fairly new. Doubt it'll be mobile phones as Canonical would need a fairly big investment in software to write phone software (no existing Gnome software would be usable on a small phone screen).
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    The Ubuntu Countdown is going down fast...

    Dose anyone know what the Ubuntu countdown is for? it says so many hours mins and seconds, however I can't find what it is actually for, it's not 12.10 since that is already out, so what is it? 13.40 beta? or the final replacement of 12.10 to replace 12.04? I was surprised it doesn't give a link to anything to tell you what it is doing. Or if anyone else has found a link for info where can I find out?

    I would love to know what this is and also know how many others have stumbled across this?

    Thanks to anyone who responds

    But I am afraid that the Ubuntu OS will be one of the acorns not surviving.
    Or worse, that these side steps will eventually kill Canonical.

    Would you clarify what you mean by this and what led you to this conclusion?

    What I mean is that if Canonical is diverting a lot of resources to other projects than its core business (the OS), the progress of the OS might suffer, or worse, if these other projects suffer losses, Canonical as a whole and by extension the OS will stall.

    The same OS will run on everything from a smart phone to a super computer. That is the whole point.
