      If he was in charge of the entire project then it does look like a fairly dismal failure.

        Well, It's kinda like telling someone their job is to build a super skyscraper 850 stories tall with a 7km base. Obviously that's not gonna happen. Canonicals own fault.

          I hope this only implicates the actual hardware phone project, and not the entire Touch/Convergent UI project. I never thought Canonical had the DNA to compete with Apple/Google. But I do want the touch UI to be successful.

          I think Ubuntu's high level approach could be superb on devices like the ASUS Chromebook Flip. And touchscreens are simply going to be ubiquitous in the near future.
