    What do you guys think about the upcoming ubuntu phones? I respect the Ubuntu philosophy, but I am yet to hear some honest opinions about their new phone launch....

    I like Linux (Ubuntu is not my favorite distro, though). I'll have to wait and see what features and apps are available on the new Ubuntu smartphones, though. I think those devices might appeal to Android users who want something even more tied to FOSS than Android. The devices might also appeal to former WebOS users.

    Yeah it seems their process of app development could easily make Ubuntu a popular mobile OS

    Maybe they'll create an Ubuntu Nation if it becomes popular :)
