Re: Official end off Ubuntu Phone - Please read this because this is sad....


When he says ditching unity, does he also mean the unity desktop?
I actually like the unity desktop, there are many distros with good gnome desktops, I use ubuntu as desktop mainly because unity has matured nicely.

Now, if only someone found a way to install sailfish on those reasonably priced BQ's or Wileyfoxs...
But I guess I will have to find their mailing list now.

Thanks to Shuttleworth and the Canonical teams for the attempt.

This is especially confusing since just today there was another blog
post explaining what is being worked on for Ubuntu 18.04 regarding X
apps in a Unity 8/Mir world.

So even Canonical employees were not informed of this?

Mark's post lacks details though. What will happen of Unity 7? Mir?
And how switching back to Gnome by default reflects on the stated will
to invest on the desktop? Because it may also be interpreted as "ditch
the current default Ubuntu and replace it by Ubuntu Gnome".

I hope some clarifications will come.

"I’m writing to let you know that we will end our investment in Unity8,
the phone and convergence shell. We will shift our default Ubuntu
desktop back to GNOME for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS."
