Will Ubuntu's Unity 8 be more of a success than Window's Metro


Recommended Posts

Will Unity 8 be a success? Is all Linux going to follow the lead of Ubuntu with the idea of a one size fits all operating system? It is almost as if they were thinking that Microsoft was on to something with Windows 8 and its Metro interface.

"One of the longer-term Ubuntu goals is to provide a fully convergent cross-platform operating environment, from the mobile phone form factor through tablets, netbooks, notebooks, desktops, and workstations to the big screen television entertainment system experience."

No it will not be a success, and no other distros will not follow, because Ubuntu isn't "leading" anything, they are alienating people. In fact many are distancing themselves from the lame interface.

No it will not be a success,

don't know about that, might work well on mobile phones, no video player app at the moment and no android app support is a big drawback i'd say for the phone.


as to other distro's "following" like bruce said, nope. :D


to be honest i don't even know of another distro that wants to take on google and android and break into the phones and tablet market at the moment.
