    Re: Could Ubuntu save RIM?

    i read one of value investors plans to invest in BB. The advantage of Ubuntu on a phone would be that many office and other applciaitons already exist. it porbably wouldnt' be too difficult to port android applicaitons as well. and the way it was planned is a portable smartphone/PC. maybe it could actually work.

    Are you talking about encrypted voice or encrypted messaging? For the latter you can use open public-key methods like GPG with AES256 (AES with 256-bit keys) as the algorithm.

    Blackberry might have packaged these things together in a way that makes them easy to administer, but the underlying technologies are all open.
    If you ask for help, please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    Ubuntu can barely save itself.

    Well, hardly. Ubuntu will be around for a long time, the "Crowdfunding" proved that.
    But RIM : Blackberry, went down the tube due to poor management and very bad customer service. The arrogant attitude at RIM Park has effectively leveled the company,
    but................. The company (RIM/BB) will be sold shortly, and "Fairfax Financial" has an excellent record in management and customer service.
    Look closely at Canonicals' Ubuntu. Good management, and "IMHO" excellent customer service.
    Ubuntu is the leader of the pack and Redhat may be doing well but Ubuntu shines.

    Ubuntu spies on its' users - fact. There's no getting around that, or getting around the appalling "Unity" rubbish.

    The fact that RMS labels it spying does not make it spying. Unity bashing is tiresome.

    Back on topic, please.

    If you would like the opinion of a Canonical employee, it might be best to communicate with one.

    Removed comments that do not further this discussion, and yes - it was totally off-topic. No point speaking one's mind, when it is denied outright - I refuse to waste my time on such futile pursuits.

    I like my Z10; it's a good phone, and yes I tried Android - I don't like it. It's too bad Apple did not buy Blackberry - it would make a great Apple division.
