    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.

          they moved the packages from debian repository to the ubuntu repository along with 1000 buggy script fixes

            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 (?).

                No thanks, your version is wrong actually.

                  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...).

                      Slightly off-topic, I'm planning to buy a Nexus 7 once they are back in stock here in Sweden. I want to use it to read and watch video while on the move, anyone here with first-hand experience on this device?

                        It's an awesome tablet for the price.

                          You know what else is a waste of time? Living. I mean, we're all going to die anyway, so what's the point in doing anything at all? I wonder what is it that drives people into doing things instead of just standing still waiting for death?

                            It's an awesome device period. Absolutely love mine. Use Android, though. On Ubuntu the feature sizes (icons, textboxes, etc) seem way too small to be useful.

                              Thanks guys for your input, although it wasn't exactly exhaustive

                              Yeah it's hard to argue with the price (even with the price jacking here in Sweden), it actually seems almost too good to be true which is why I wanted some objective views rather than the 'paid to review product X as either awesome or awful' which seems to be what you get whenever someone with a monetary incentive reviews something.

                              I guess now I'll just have to wait until a new batch arrives to Sweden, I was perhaps stupid not to book one but I didn't think they would be selling out in single a day upon arrival. Que sera...
