    Groundbreaking news, the OS for phones is meant to go on tablets too.

    I was expecting a hardware release announcement. Anything else is just smoke.

    Also, every time Mark was talking about "clean, pretty, beautiful" I just wanted to facepalm so hard. Seriously, nobody cares. We care if apps are easy to develop, are functional, bugs and crashes are low, and it functions as a seamless desktop and mobile OS.

    I disagree that this is a let down. I think this is pretty cool actually. Even if we knew it was coming.

    iBuntu, now with more spyware

    Microsoft Office 2010 using Wine/CrossOver? LOL, he's showing clearly about not caring a shit about Free Software at all. He did not put LibreOffice in the video. It seems he's using rdesktop or something like that, but I find it quite anti-Linux in my opinion.

    Also, how to run a X86 app on an ARM in an efficient way? This is just smoke and mirrors.

    It's not that bad. When users and developers start playing with it interesting things may happen.

    What concerns me is the speed parameter. Google and Apple spent too much time to speed the UI where Ubuntu still runs on top of X11 with an un-maintained compositor. This doesn't look very promising.

    What Wine and Crossover, he was talking about thin clients and stuff.

    Yeah it's not a let down in that sense, but it was that I couldn't download the image to flash.

    Ubuntu for Phones/Tablets is not going to use X11, at least not when it is closer to being finished. Also, Compiz is not un-maintained.

    It's thin-client ability so one can connect to business server to access their network software, like Excel from Microsoft-Office. Not Wine.
