Ubuntu Phone faced the same struggle that Firefox OS did which is simply the lack of an app ecosystem which is also what killed WebOS and Tizen.

Unless you can compete strongly with the AppStore and Google Play then it doesn't matter how great the OS is people won't use it and partners will abandon it.

I like what Canonical is trying to do with Snappy that being making it easier for developers to ship updates to users on Linux but this blog post does point out how the buzz has been wrong and that Snappy doesn't have buy in from other distros not even the Ubuntu flavors it seems.

It would be nice if all distros could put aside their differences and embrace something like Snappy but I'm afraid that with Canonical spearheading it that's unlikely. Maybe Linus needs to make a packaging format? :)
