Ubuntu for tablets was officially unveiled today. According to PCMag, “A Touch Developer Preview will be released on Feb. 21 via developer.ubuntu.com, which will work on the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets.”
I’m actually a huge fan of the interface on the Nexus 7 and I probably wouldn’t change it, but I would absolutely love someone to get a stripped down version of Ubuntu running on a Kindle Fire. I absolutely hate that my Kindle Fire won’t recognize a USB device and can’t access the Google Play Store without rooting it and potentially bricking the device.
Some of the added features of Ubuntu will be voice control, an invisible task-bar called magic edges, and a split screen mode to allow for better multitasking: Skype while you watch a movie at the same time.
