It’s a well known fact that Canonical has such vast engineering resources, they manage to produce a new version of Ubuntu every 6 months, without these versions being half-baked or rushed. Obviously something to do with pink unicorns and the power of open source, don’t ask YouWouldntUnderstand™. However, having such vast engineering resources and focusing just on the desktop and the server is clearly a waste, so why not also make a smartphone and tablet version?
Yes that’s right folks, Ubuntu for the smartphone, the tablet, the dekstop and the server. One Ubuntu to ruin… i mean, rule them all!
The bad news is that if this ever becomes a reality, the FUD mill for the smartphone and tablet market will shift into overdrive. 'Till now, with Android being NotTrulyFree™ and with MeeGo apparently dead, and hence with no OS to recommend, the FUD mill was working at half of it’s capacity (“Android is big step closer, but MeeGo would be better”). But if Ubuntu Smartphone Remix ever arrives (and hence gNewSense Smartphone Remix), the FUD mill will shift into 110% of it’s capacity, with freetards attempting to shoe horn their (P)OS of choice to our phones and tablets, in exchange for not trolling us on forums everywhere. Just like on the desktop.
On the bright side, Ubuntu Smartphone Remix will serve the freetards well. Freetards don’t have a social life, so it’s not like they need to receive phone calls and SMSes (“the calls and messages modules don’t work, but it opens Firefox Mobile so i 'm happy”)
