Mr. Ubuntu himself, Mark Shuttleworth, has stated that they will be moving into the do things in the mobile space and on TV's. Yeah that's right becuase we need yet another phone OS they are going to try their hand at it. We found stories on both LinuxInsider and readwriteweb that do a great job talking about the topic. Our opinion is that while we believe they could do great things in the space we don't want the to sacrafice the desktop to do it. Unity will be a great tablet/phone UI but it doesn't work on the desktop. They are different use cases and should be treated as such. We have been pointing this out for sevaral months now on the podcast and touched on it yet again.
Let us know what you think about this in the comments below.
