This upstirring undertaking Ubuntu is, as my colleague MPT explains, performance art. Not only must it be art, it must also perform, and that on a deadline. So many thanks and much credit to the teams and individuals who made our most recent release, the Trusty Tahr, into the gem of 14.04 LTS.

It looks like we will have to keep using Xorg on the desktop for a while. According to OMG! Ubuntu! Mir might not arrive to Ubuntu desktop until the LTS release coming in 2016. What do you think about the decision?
 
Mir may not arrive on the Ubuntu desktop as a default until 2016.

Canonical's X server replacement may not make it as the default display server until the next LTS release, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Nevertheless, three releases sit between next month's 14.04 LTS release and the 2016 estimate and Mir is already powering Ubuntu on phones and tablets.

+Daniel Foerster It didn't look like vapourware on my laptop when I was testing Steam games on XMir, and I have to say that in the last releases it's really feeling very good on my Nexus phone...  I do know what you mean, but Canonical has to ensure the LTS releases are stable, so probably things will pick up after April.

Ubuntu scores highest in UK Gov security assessment

UK government security arm CESG has published a report of its assessment on the security of all ‘End User Device’ operating systems.

Its assessment compared 11 desktop and mobile operating systems across 12 categories including: VPN, disk encryption, and authentication. These criteria are roughly equivalent to a standard set of enterprise security best practices, and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS came out on top – the only operating system that passed nine requirements without any “Significant Risks”.

Lol. Having ANY govt say something is secure really doesn't have much bearing anymore since the Snowden leaks.

The first Ubuntu tablets could launch this Autumn - reports OMG! Ubuntu!

What would you buy first if both were available: an Ubuntu phone or a tablet?
 
The first Ubuntu tablets will be launching this fall, says Shuttleworth.

The first Ubuntu tablets will be hitting the market "simultaneously" with the release of the first Ubuntu phones later this year.

Could the same "big name" companies be prepping both Ubuntu phones and tablets or could Canonical be teaming up with another small manufacturer for their first tablet?

Tablets running Ubuntu will hit the market 'simultaneously' with the first Ubuntu smartphones, Mark Shuttleworth has said.

I'd get the tablet first. Only if it can run android apps though.

Jono Bacon, speaking in an informal AMA on Reddit, explains that while he ‘would love to see major OEM/Carriers shipping Ubuntu handsets’ he’d be ‘surprised’ if any hit the market before 2015 - reports OMG! Ubuntu!

Are you disappointed? Would you buy an Ubuntu Phone made by a less known manufacturer early or will you wait for a major player?

For more details go to OMG! Ubuntu!: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2014/01/ubuntu-phone-small-oem-no-apps
 
Ubuntu Phones from major OEMs? Not before 2015, says Jono Bacon.

Mark Shuttleworth recently stoked hopes of “household brands” shipping Ubuntu-powered phones, but Canonical’s Community Manager has seemingly poured cold water on it happening any time soon.
