Well, actually, it is.

The Ubuntu TV project has only one or two developers, from what I hear. You will never ship a product with such little support.
I love the idea of Ubuntu Phone, but Canonical doesn't seem to be clear about its features and target market. Contrast that to the Ouya startup: They are clear about what the Ouya will do and what its selling points are and have been since their Kickstarter.
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.
