    Here is an article in Forbes that identifies why Ubuntu phone OS is so revolutionary in very simple terms. http://www.forbes.com/sites/timworst...-of-my-dreams/

    No FUD involved. Well, perhaps some fear of uncertainty if it will be as successful as I hope it will be. Out side of this forum, I am getting the word out about this amazing concept via Twitter, G+, FaceBook, email and forums, trying to get other excited about it and to convince hardware vendors and carriers to pick it up as the last three carriers Ive had have a hard time getting decent stuff and I think this would destroy the competition on T-Mobile and regional markets.

    Sometimes I think written communication is lacking quite often. I was trying to convey the thought that despite the LONG road a head, and the fact that at this moment, it IS unattainable as in I cannot download code at this second, that I want this to come to frustration.

    Once I can get my hands on it, I will wipe my phone and load it so I can show it off to as many people as I can, again so that we can get some decent handsets with it.

    BUT until then, and I think this is what made people over react with the way I started off, I will be a bit sad/uncertain...until i can get my hands on it.
    I sort of thought that was how it was going to be perceived on a forum dedicated to believers in Ubuntu...

    We will not let this turn into a repeat of the endless moaning that we experienced with Unity, the buttons change etc etc etc
    I don't see it as "FUD". It's an expression of his opinion.
    The moaning about unity was tiresome when it infiltrated threads not specifically about unity.
    Is this not a thread to discuss the Ubuntu phone OS?
    Please moderate and not dictate.

    Funny you should say that.

    Because moaning about what you are moaning about has nothing to do with the thread.

    I agree with stinkeye.

    Pardon my ignorance, but would this be the first phone that this can be done with? The idea of of being able to "boot the desktop variant of Ubuntu when docked to a keyboard, mouse and monitor" sounds really good to me.

    If the stars align and they get a few Ubuntu phones out by 14.04, I'll strongly consider getting one.
    Of course the alignment of the stars would be a local carrier, which I don't hate using, having one, among other smaller factors.

    I like Ubuntu, and don't mind showing my support.

    Can't wait to see how it plays out. Very exciting. I probably wouldn't be able to afford something like this anytime soon (or, I might not be willing to dish out whatever it costs), but 5 years down the road, who knows?
