  1. I’ve installed ubunto on my laptop, and I’m growing fond of the ui. Although it takes a while to get used to interface (as it’s not a windows, and not yet a mac), ubuntu simplifies a lot of processes, and I like the graphics, which is very clean,

    so yes, i would definitely be looking forward to seeing ubunto on smartphones!
