=== Ubuntu unveils tablet experience with multi-tasking ===

 

This week Canonical announced the availability of an SDK for Ubuntu

for tablets. Ubuntu for tablets provides manufacturers with an

alternative to Android that can be managed with the same tools as

Ubuntu server or desktop. Ubuntu for tablets is an elegant,

non-fragmented solution that provides a secure multi-user experience.

=== Ubuntu Pros and Cons ===

 

Bruce Byfield of Datamation looks at the pros and cons as he sees them

of Ubuntu.

Cons include:

 

1. Increasing Insularity of Development

2. The Commercial Controlling the Community

3. Designing for Mobile Devices

4. Forgotten Roots

5. Ads on the desktop

6. Privacy and Security Issues

7. Introducing Proprietary Elements

 

Pros include:

1. Simplified Installation

2. An Emphasis on Localization

3. Launchpad

4. Regular Release Cycles

5. Encrypted Home Directories

6. Community Building

7. Concern About Usability

 

"But instead of praising or criticizing Ubuntu and Canonical

wholeheartedly, it seems more reasonable to approach them without

expectations, judging them by their actions rather than their

marketing or their past," said Byfield about his thoughts on finding

balance.

 

http://www.datamation.com/open-source/ubuntu-pros-and-cons-1.html

 

=== Why More People Are Choosing Ubuntu ===

 

Matt Hartley of Datamation writes, "In this article, we'll explore why

Ubuntu is succeeding, why some folks dislike Ubuntu and how this

affects (or doesn't affect) other Linux distributions." The areas he

explores include learning for others, desktop environments and general

usability, Unity and the Dash controversy, and the various Ubuntu

derivatives.

 

Hartley notes in his final thoughts, "And despite the fact that

sometimes Ubuntu's development cycle may frustrate me, the core Ubuntu

experience has been very good to me."
