    I think there's a lot of worthless work being done, including LLVM on Java and Ubuntu on Nexus.
    I wish people/Canonical spent their time on important stuff.

    What the hell has the LLVM java implementation news to do with this?? It's like saying "yesterday night i ate an awful pizza and today there are still wars in the world, people should stop to do bad things".

    I said those are particular examples of worthless waste of time. Still don't get it (?).

    Well, this is what they wanted I guess - it was after all the whole point of Unity, to run on the desktop/laptop/phone/tablet (heck it's in the name).

    Now let's see it crash and burn as my cynical side thinks it will. Not sure how Canonical expects it to even challenge the iPad when Android is struggling with might of Google.

    I wonder if the Nexus port is the first public variant of "Ubuntu for Android" It would definitely be nice to be able to play with that very promising project and I guess they will eventually need users to iron out the issues (contact sharing, seamless browser session transfer etc...).
