    Phoronix: Ubuntu In 2013: Mobile, Unity, Deep In The Cloud

    With 2012 quickly coming to a close, Mark Shuttleworth wrote a blog post this morning about his views on Ubuntu Linux in 2013...

    Default yikes

    LOL. Talking about not excluding while you demand outside developers to sign the Canonical CA. This is all about excluding! They exclude contribitions and the exclude pure free software patches.

    2013 will be al about excluding developers/pure free software. Oh yeah and skunkworks plus opt out spyware. Jesus Christ Ubuntus moral is degrading fast.

    Try Windows 8, then tell me Unity is made for mobile.

    And yes, I use and love Unity.

    Default Does not want Ubuntu on mobile

    Android is great on mobile.
    Unity is not great on mobile.

    I do not believe that Unity is suited for mobile. Making Unity suitable for mobile would mean making it unsuitable for the desktop.

    The desktop and the mobile have different usages and needs.
    Also general-purpose computing (PC, laptop) and an information appliance (TV, tablet, phone) have different usages and needs.

    Until they separate application updates from system updates, their Software Center will be a poor mockup of the OS X App Store and its Windows counterpart. It's really pathetic that something that was actually invented "here" has been done so much better "there".

    Ubuntu is doomed until PPAs become completely unnecessary for stable releases. As it stands today, what's really superfluous is the Software Center, where you can't find the latest release of almost any still developed app. Useless.

    Indeed!

    It sucks when a new release of a software is out, and I can't have it.
    I run a FOSS operating system and see a new release of a FOSS application, most of the developers run Linux, so I should be a first-class premium citizen who get it first, right?
    Nope, I get it last. Everyone with Windows and Mac gets it before me! It sucks!

    Arrow At least it's progress.

    The kernel should be rolling-released in the next LTS and Ubuntu have plans to go full-rolling-release for a long time, so they are working on it. But it can't be simply done. Even the best rolling release these days is much less user friendly than the most unstable Ubuntu release. For the time being we have PPAs.

    Well the core can be frozen and the optional be rolling.
    Example, everything pre-installed and on the ISO image is frozen, i.e. the kernel, GNOME, X.org, LibreOffice, GCC, Python, etc.
    Then stuff not on the ISO image will be rolling, such as GIMP, Blender, VLC, Audacity, etc.
