Most of the interface will be gesture-based, which is not too far from how the BlackBerry 10 platform relies on the outside edges of the display as well as bezel to initiate user actions. Canonical claims that […]
02/15/2013, Developers will be able to use their Google Galaxy Nexus and Google Nexus 4 devices to “flash” a developer-friendly version of Ubuntu Mobile from Canonical.

10/22/2012, Ubuntu does seem to have shifted their attention to the tablet and mobile market, where you can check it out in the video above that shows off Ubuntu running on a Nexus 7 (yes, the Asus-manufactured tablet for Google).

10/18/2012, This is good timing–as the computing world braces for the wide release of Windows 8 next week, the Linux evangalists at Canonical have released a new version of Ubuntu. The version is numbered 12.10, and in line with Ubuntu’s naming convention, it’s called Quantal Quetzal. For those wondering, yes, a Quetzal is a bird native to Mexico and central America.

How it works is simple: when a device is undocked, it functions just like […]
01/25/2012, Ubuntu must have taken a look at their application menus and decided that something needs to be done about the situation – and hence, took that out, replacing it instead with a HUD control system. This HUD control will replace the aforementioned menus with a panel where one is able to write the command that you want carried out, and I am sure that voice control advocates would say (naturally, […]
01/09/2012, [CES 2012] While Google TV and Apple TV haven’t really been finding their way into the living room of consumers, there is still room in the market for an alternative smart TV platform.
