I only recently joined and I was wondering if there is anything going on with Ubuntu Jordan.
By the way, I just tried the new Ubuntu Touch OS on my Nexus 4. It looks amazing, but I'm not a developer and there's still too many bugs and features which don't work, so I put Android back on it. Apparently it will be much more useable in a couple of weeks though.
Re: Current activity
The open source community is active in Jordan. You could always check JOSA (jordanopensource.org) for more info about their activities.
Sadly there's nothing much going here on the forums.
I saw the videos & early reviews of the much-anticipated OS. Looks promising & innovating but as you said it's still too early for regular usability.
