I think we should care. Ubuntu looks to be very functional and at the very least something we can look forward to. It will be some time before we can do more with it but as of right now I think its cool.

Ubuntu is a real true Linux OS. Android is an OS with a Linux core.
Let's not forget that Android does not have true multi-tasking either.

This is exciting. Loving the tablet UI as well.

I'm excited to see what (if any) kind of impact a Ubuntu phone will make on the market. Same goes for the upcoming Ubuntu tablets as well. It's nice to have more options when considering a new phone and/or tablet. Bottom line, the more OS for people to choose from the better in my opinion.

NO locked bootloaders. Geez just leave the devices alone.

hopefully google can make some major changes to help stop future fragmentation from happening as well

I'm so confused as to why Ubuntu is coming to phones. Android is Linux based...Ubuntu is a OS/UI off of Linux....So all they'll be doing is essentially using Android and making a launcher. yes i realize that that is oversimplifying it, but honestly thats pretty much what it is.

Then what do you think about 100s of linux distributions in desktop???
It's linux based not linux itself so it is good to have choices...
