Phoronix: Ubuntu Edge Campaign Set To Close At $12M USD
The Ubuntu Edge crowd-sourced smart-phone campaign is set to end tonight, but Canonical is short by twenty million dollars on its crowd-funding campaign and there's been no last minute surprises to push the Ubuntu-powered converged device ahead...
As expected, Canonical now spreads the word how successful this project was and how happy they are about it.
Is there any source where they say that this is just a test _before_ it was clear that they won't reach the funding goal?
1. They made themselves, and this project, more known to the general public
2. They didn't keep stabbing linux users in the back with things like mir
3. They didn't have such a ridiculous demand to get this developed
