More competition is better, a lesson that should be learned by apple.

I don't have faith in ubuntu anymore. Unity has been utter garbage in terms of usability and only recently is slowly climbing out of the pit it dug itself.

Very good. I hope they will not suffer of lawsuits from who we know

Correct me if I'm wrong: Apple has never directly sued Google for Android. They have only sued manufacturers.

I could see Ubuntu moving to tablets and some smartphones so that they can more easily connect to Linux based servers to eliminate the need for monitors. As a major OS on smartphones/tablets/and smart TVs, I don't think that it would be very popular; considering iOS and Android are both based on the Unix kernel.

I'd like to see how that goes, I always liked linux, but who knows how it will go against android(and others) on mobile platforms

I wouldnt mind trying a dual boot of Ubuntu on my PC, anyone know if this is possible without partitioning?

Maybe VirtualBox... But partitioning is also much more stable.

partition is the best way to go. live cd/usb are viable but slower options.

you can also use wubi. It installs ubuntu in a virtual hard disk that it creats, but its just like a normal way of installing ubuntu. you have grub for boot loader and ubuntu mount your windows partitions as well.
and the best thing is that wubi comes in all of ubuntu disks.
