And to finish off the +Ubuntu convergence tests today, here's a showcase of some of the core apps originally developed for the phone, now running on my desktop under Unity 8: Notes (formerly Reminders), Weather, Terminal, Calculator, Calendar, System Settings and Doc Viewer, along with the Scopes window showing the applications scope.

Note the desktop layout already available in Notes. All looking good!

As the next step with the Unity 8 session on my desktop last night, I built and installed the terminal app, originally developed for touch. With the latest improvements from +Filippo Scognamiglio and others to make it desktop friendly it's looking and working great. I can now use the command line in the session. Next stop: install the rest of core apps to test them on a unity 8-based desktop setting.

Note: this is not yet snappy-based. It's just a means for testing Unity8 on a separate session on your regular machine.

Great job from the French team summarizing the Ubuntu Online Summit last night. Looking forward to more multilingual sessions in future UOSs!

El País (most important newspaper in Spain), publishes an article about the hybrid devices, featuring an image and mentioning Ubuntu Edge. «The new mobiles corner the PC». (Nothing about the plans to release a converged phone, though).

I had been meaning to try the +Ubuntu Unity 8 session for a while, and finally last evening had a bit of hacking time and decided to go for it. This is not yet the convergent desktop experience, but rather a way to comfortably test Unity8 on your regular desktop.

I'm really impressed by a) the LXC container setup, which does not mess the rest of your system and lets you switch between your classic desktop and the new Unity and b) even with apps not yet being completely functional, the look and feel of the Unity 8 session on a big monitor (after being used to see it on the phone).

Kudos to everyone working on pushing the boundaries of the convergence vision. In particular, thanks to +Stephen M. Webb and Chris Townsend for their help in debugging a couple of issues to get me up and running.

If you want to give it a go, remember that this is for early testing purposes only, and that you should have either an Intel graphics card, or switch to the nouveau driver if you're using nvidia:

Learn about the discussions and news about snappy during the Ubuntu Online Summit. Still time to participate on the last day!
 
Here's a quick summary of Snappy@UOS. Join us for the brainstorm session later on!
It'd be a bit of a stretch to call UOS Snappy Online Summit, but Snappy definitely was talk of the town this time around. It was also picked up by tech news sites, who not always depicted Ubuntu's plans accurately. :-). Anyway… if you missed some of the sessions, you can always go back, ...
