Ok, I haven’t been checking latest Linux rumors regarding new projects from canonical for a long, long time. That’s why, 3 days ago when I saw an official countdown clock at the Ubuntu main page, my first thought was that Ubuntu will be available with some sort of “tablet friendly” distribution with the next release. I was positively surprised with the announcement of the Ubuntu Phone Os. So, after watching the official teaser, and the short hands -on demonstration presented by The Verge, I made couple of conclusions regarding Ubuntu Phone Os:

  1. This is a stunning OS. At least it looks like it is going to be one. Cannonical did a great job with trying to bring all what is best, handy and easy to use in Unity Shell. I especially like the feature of unlocking the screen by sweeping the screen. Simple and easy.

  1. This is a OS for large screen phones. And as much as I enjoy months of experience with my Galaxy Note, and understand that not all of you will appreciate working with larger screen smartphones. I understand, that the phone used in the presentation is Nexus 4, which comparing to iphone (4S – 3.5 inches, IP5- 4inches) is already huge. Sweeping notifications panels from the top on screens smaller than 4-inches would be a nightmare. But with Samsung, HTC and soon Sony joining the team of 5-inch screen’s phones, the list of the “bigger smartphones” is growing.
  2. Once the full info about the system of delivering the devices with pre-installed Ubuntu Phone OS and the option to install it will be provided I will make up my mind about Ubuntu Phone OS. As for now, I would love to see it in action on Galaxy Note II, even in the development state
  3. And I just love that Ubuntu notification circle.

  1. If you find Windows XP is running slow one of the biggest
    problems you will face is trying to find out what is causing it.
    Now then, can we design autonomous cars to understand when they are getting
    into trouble, when their visual sensors are overloaded and the
    computer system can’t process the information fast enough to stay safe. Such a comprehensive program will offer even greater protection against both Adware and various other miscreants, including viruses and spyware.
