    Re: Ubuntu phone OS

    Now that I am up to speed with all the posts in this thread, and yes, I did read all of them. This thread has been only going 5 days, but after been down 3 day sick, I got behind.
    There has been a lot mentioned about ARM and x86 and I think people don't realize what an impact when MS announced that Win8 will be compatible with ARM. (WinRT). This in it's self is hard to overstate how important this added will change the way we look at future. I think Canonical making this announcement when they did is going to be a big thing for them.
    We know that Canonical and Nexus 7 has been a way to port over to the ARM processor. Now we are seeing it on ARM based phones.

    One more thing to mention here is Apps and Applications or programs, I want to use the right terminology. We know that programs written for the x86 will not run on the ARM. I would think that an app written for Android would run on a Ubuntu phone? I put it as a question, because I am not 100% sure it will.

    Probably. If Android runs on top of a JVM already, then it shouldn't be that big a deal then to port the internals over to allow Android apps to run, both being open source.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clue

    I don't think it'll be that easy, honestly. It'd basically be running a second OS on top of the same kernel, which works for Ubuntu for Android, but only because the two don't have to share a UI. At best, I'd think it'd be a bit like switching back and forth between a pair of VMs (except in that neither one is technically a VM at all.)

    Shouldn't be hard either, since you don't have to emulate Android to run 90 percent of the apps as I understand it, just Dalvik.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clue

    Neither Ubuntu Phone nor Ubuntu for Android has been released. They are both still in the experimental & development stage. Frustrating, I know!

    Why don't you ask on the Ubuntu IRC channels to find out if you can get a copy? But, you'd have to be aware that it neither is even an Alpha release, so be prepared for major, possibly fatal, bugs.

    Also listen to what he says about convergence: One device to run your phone, tablet, TV, laptop. It just keeps getting cooler!

    Here's a suggestion. Let Canonical copyright the idea and patent the implementation. Give the copyright and patent away free to companies that commit to stop playing the software patent game, and sell them for megabucks to those that won't!
