    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.

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