Everything is progressing on schedule for Ubuntu 13.10, which had its first beta release yesterday, and will be launching as a final version on October 17th. This is important because Ubuntu Touch is Ubuntu 13.10.

These phones will get rid of the OS barrier and make it more like PC where you can choose or dual boot. If WP ever becomes like real windows you might eventually see a tri booting phone.

Stop teasing me with your utopian dreams of being able to run what you want to run just like I can on my desktop! Being able to tri-boot between WP, Android, AND Ubuntu? What is this beautiful madness?!?!

Agree, it would be crazy. And stupid, you have to turn off all the time to switch to other OS.

You know the solution to that is to just not switch to the other OSes then, right? Having the option does not mean you have to use it.
