Ubuntu Touch Could Really Use an Android Runtime to Emulate Apps

Filed under
Android
Ubuntu

Ubuntu Touch is already stable, and it's available on two different phones right now, Bq Aquaris and Meizu MX4. It's different from your regular OS experience, but that's a good thing. The only real problem is the lack of apps, although a Blackberry approach to the problem might be a good thing for Canonical.

Full Ubuntu Convergence Demonstrated in One Image

Filed under
Ubuntu

Convergence used to mean a different thing a couple of years back. We used to think that it's about turning your phone into a working PC, and that was a great idea, but that concept has been refined mostly by the need of the real world. Sure enough, Canonical could have put forth a working prototype for a phone that doubled down like a PC, but they would limit themselves.

Getting Snappy with Ubuntu

As with every major change to Ubuntu, I have Bodhi users asking if we will continue using Ubuntu as a base. As always, my answer is: Wait and see! I like waiting to actually see what a new technology has to offer instead of casting judgment beforehand.

Ubuntu: Landing team 18.05.15

Filed under
Ubuntu

Hello everyone,

Everyone's slowly preparing for the OTA planned at the end of the month.
The list of issues that have been scheduled for this milestone can be
found on the ww22-2015 LP milestone [1]. There are some connectivity
fixes on the way, but not only that - good stuff in overall. With the
release of OTA-4 the stable branch will officially become vivid based.
There's not too many visual changes coming with this switch, but there
are a few things we didn't back-port to 14.09 before.
Of course, the timing all depends on the state of the candidate images,
so no promises on the release date yet.

Android Leftovers

Report from Debian SnowCamp and a Look at Solyd XK, a Debian-Based Distribution

  • Report from Debian SnowCamp: day 1
  • Report from Debian SnowCamp: day 2
    Of course, we’re still sorely lacking volunteers who would really care about mentors.debian.net; the codebase is a pile of hacks upon hacks upon hacks, all relying on an old version of a deprecated Python web framework. A few attempts have been made at a smooth transition to a more recent framework, without really panning out, mostly for lack of time on the part of the people running the service. I’m still convinced things should restart from scratch, but I don’t currently have the energy or time to drive it… Ugh.
  • Installing Solyd XK, a Debian based Linux distribution : Cooking With Linux
    It's time for some more "Cooking With Linux" without a net, meaning the video you are about to watch was recorded live. Today, I'm going to install a new Linux distribution (new to me, anyhow) called Solyd XK.

Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Phone - With Android

I ever so slightly regret the "upgrade" to Android. With a version less than the tablet, the UI changes are extremely noticeable, and the transition isn't as smooth. The device lags, and it just doesn't have enough processing power to give the necessary feel of goodness and elegance. On the other hand, you get tons of native applications that you can actually use, as opposed to the Ubuntu Touch idea. Shame really. For 'tis a compromise. If you ask me, I wholeheartedly embrace the M10 tablet upgrade, but on the phone, you might as well keep Ubuntu unless you need the device for serious use. If it's just an opportunistic call/SMS thing for when abroad and such, or to loan to friends, the original combo is adequate. If you need apps, then Android is the way to go, but do not except any miracles. It won't be speedy, and it won't be too pretty. All in all, an okay player. It is silly attaching sentiments to software or hardware, but I do guess I will fondly remember the Ubuntu phone attempt as a noble idea to make something great and fun. I could have kept the device in its original state, perhaps, but in the end, it would have ended in a pile of ancient stuff you keep around for a decade until you decide you need to throw it away to leave room for fresh memories and less ancient stuff. Having a flawless Android experience would have helped soften the edge, but as it is, it remains the bittersweet attempt at what could have been a revolution. The end.
