interesting to see. It seems to pull features from all OSs and combine them into what could be a great overall experience. It has the problem of being another OS like firefox and sailfish etc though

I looked through that. Very interesting, definitely BB10esque, and at least a year away. The next couple years certainly look exciting, for smartphone lovers!

If it makes you feel better, it probably won't EVER support Sun Java or Netflix because to this day, neither Sun Java NOR Netflix support Ubuntu.

I feel like there is going to be too many mobile oses in the marketplace. How will carriers decide which ones to push and other than the Brand ones( apple,google,rim, microsoft) all the others offer the same thing I see which is a strong HTML 5 prescense within the os. As well its funny how people are getting so excited over these oses because it pushes HTML 5 but so does BlackBerry 10.

its another Linux based of like android, i persoanlly would think ubuntu will have an advantage as even their desktop OS has always been the most user friendly of the Linux OS family so it might have an advantage come mobile

Looking at the feedback in the tech blogosphere, I see people being excited about Ubuntu because it doesn't have a home button and is gesture based, yet when it comes to BB10 (which will do all those plus has a subscriber base), they are not excited about it.
I wish I could stomach Ubuntu, but I cannot for two reasons: my Samsung 17" doesn't play nice with Ubuntu and I hate the font in Ubuntu. Linux, imo, should remain a developer or administrative tool. (Fedora Core ftw)

BB10 UI is more mature than this but it just might be good enough. Problem for me is that all the cool things I love about Linux would gobble that battery up like crazy. Linux is a modern advanced OS that to be used to its full potential NEEDS to be run on a Desktop. I'm curious to see if Ubuntu limits any services/packages to be run. What I like about Linux is that there isn't anyone telling you how many apps to run at a time or what the icons should/will look like. Its completely customizable. I can't say I like what I see now but I'm interested where they go with this.
There are more reasons why I won't use Ubuntu, but I honestly hate looking at the font. Unity. Ick. Should be Gnome by default.

Not sure if it was in this video or another but BB10 is ahead of Ubuntu in HTML5 as well. With Ubuntu they say they allow HTML5 apps to be used alongside native apps except they fail mention on the phone they won't have access to the sensors where BB does using Native Extensions. This gives a web app true native experience and allows those devs to do more like that demo of the BB10 camera becoming pixelated/animated when touched.

Re: Blackberry 10 is heading in the correct direction: Ubuntu OS
Apple sues Samsung because Apple feels confident that they can beat them, and the suits were based on Samsung's own work. They stay away from Google because they are well aware that Google has an uncanny knack for winning in court. And then too because while Apple has openly scorned Android, their suits never target Android, but manufacturers self modifications to Android.
