Mark Shuttleworth at UDS-R: "By 14.04 we should have phone, tablet, desktop, TV, all wrapped up in one platform"
Months ago, Ubuntu TV and Ubuntu for Android (TV and smartphone) generated a solid amount of positive feedback, both in the community and as seen across the media.
Days ago, Nexus 7 was officially demoed running Ubuntu (tablet), form-factor enlarging the range of touched-by-Ubuntu machines and solidifying a bundle of already "scratched" form-factors, consequently, one (either an Ubuntu passionate or simply interested in technology) can easily assume that Ubuntu is to be constantly pursued, developed, polished, etc, in relation to globally relevant form-factors.
The above statement is not a speculation, but an actuality stated and stated by the developers, furthermore, while being present at UDS-R (conducting a keynote, etc), Mark Shuttleworth confirmed and strengthened the serious development energy oriented towards Ubuntu (as pushed into exciting form-factors).
In an interesting interview at UDS-R, Mark Shuttleworth further discusses the to-be-completed-until-the-next-LTS plans: "By 14.04 we should have phone, tablet, desktop, TV, all wrapped up in one platform,..., that's we are working towards".
