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.
