    It's just a Linux operating system. I have Ubuntu on my backup computer and I am dual booting Win8 and Linux Mint 14 on my laptop.

    I think we want to keep it mobile here... LOL

    Here's a preview of Ubuntu Touch on a Nexus 4




    Regarding the learning curve that was mentioned in the video: Coming from daily webOS use, I didn't find learning all the gestures very hard. I rather like the way it's almost exclusively gesture driven...

    It isn't enabled as of yet... I'm sure it is in the works for the consumer release though.

    Will it allow for use of the locking of NFC tags like Android? Or will they remain unlocked like WP does it?

    I wish I could answer that... There is zero mention of NFC on the wiki or any chatter about UT that I can find. I can only imagine developers will not ignore the hardware that is already present on the targeted devices.

    Does locking an NFC tag take some additional hardware over writing to one? My guess is no, so even if there isn't native functionality for locking an NFC tag, I'd bet an app that does it will be available.

    I've not used tags (yet), but my understanding is that locking the tag is part or the write process as an option.

    True, but in this case they are referring to the operating system named Ubuntu.

    That's interesting. I had followed Ubuntu many years ago, but as my work life got more hectic, I dropped dabbling in it. I find it interesting that Ubuntu is following a similar path that BlackBerry has with their BB10 OS. The BB10 OS is very swipe oriented. If you have used it, you will know that a swipe up and over will access the BB hub which gives access to all your communications. Also, the BB10 Browser is heavy duty HTML5 compliant, more compliant than most if not all desktop browsers. So you don't really need to have all those apps; I think the app need is something created by our friends over at Apple because their browser is so-so. This Ubuntu OS seems to share that vision of being non-app dependent. However, as with BlackBerry, the perception of few apps will have a consumer impact. As I said before, many people have been conditioned to believe that if there aren't a lot of apps, there has to be something wrong. BUT, if the browsing experience is golden, that's not an issue. I find it cleaner not to have a bunch of apps cluttering up my phone. I have lots of bookmarks though. It's always nice to see something other than mainstream.
