Re: Thank you
I have to agree with the positive comments here, I wish beyond anything
that the project can continue in some form and at some point reach its goal.
I will keep my MX4 and BQ M10 with Ubuntu Touch and with other continue
to hate the Android UI and lock in.

Hi to all.
Thanks to all Ubuntu team from my side.
Eventhough this days have been several negative comments in some
forums due to the project discontinuity, we would not have Ubuntu in
our phones up today nor teams working to continue the project in ports
and so on. So very BIG thanks!

and other higher ranking officials were agonising over the choice they
had to make.

cash has gone into getting us this far and that is something to be
eternally grateful for. I for one have a few desktop apps out now
which I owe to UT, they are spin offs of another dev's phone app. So
if it were not for UT I would not have gotten my head round packaging
and publishing on Ubuntu.

any of the people who gave me that experience. Here's to the next
chapter in our journey!
