Re: Ubuntu for Android, release date?
Let's be fair, Canonical was raising money directly from consumers, and although they didn't get to 32 million dollars they did get several millions in pledges. Consumer demand doesn't really matter, it's all about whether you can get investment from the businesses who would actually be making the devices, or venture capital firms.

Heck, it wouldn't surprise me if Ubuntu For Android is quietly dropped from the website soon, maybe at the same time as Ubuntu TV (it's only got one developer working on it and the code is based on Unity 2D from Ubuntu 12.04).
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.
