    Looks nice and reminds me of BB10 with all the gestures.

    Since both Ubuntu and Android are based on Linux kernels, wouldn’t that mean that they should be reasonably easy when it comes to service and app compatibility?

      Porting an android app (which requires the devalik vm that google’s android OS uses) would not be a simple task. Sure, most of the Java code would easily port, but the UI and platform specific code would require rewriting.

    Interface seems pointlessly complex.

    My new windows 8 laptop has something like that swipe from the side stuff on the ubuntu os. It drives me absolutely insane. Always popping up when I accidently swipe right to left on the scroll pad. I could see this doing the same. I dont see this catching on.

    I like the OS but to be honest… I don’t see succeeding. To much of a learning curve if I give this to regular consumer like my parents or friends.
