check the forum for that.
The point of this project is designed specifically to optimize the base system of Ubuntu including CPU, memory, and power issues. Canonical will not be working on changes to the Ubuntu UI or Unity with 13.04, those changes are tentatively scheduled for 14.04 which is due in April 2014.
You can get in on the fun now, but there are likely to be more interesting things planned for the project announced at UDS on Monday.

This is the beginning of a long term plan, and it won't really be a fully realized option until April 2014 at the earliest. So, right now, no there's no advantage, but it isn't intended to be a daily driver. It's something for developers to have so they can make it better and have something for the future.

Ubuntu would be a full blown out OS running on your tab; like Windows on your little device.

Android has a lot of functionality but still not at par with a full desktop OS like Ubuntu/Windows, And like I said a lot of essential programs won't work on mobile OSes. Even RT can't run macros, and RT is from windows.

Time for full desktop OS on a TAB not very far off and specifically a M$ free OS. With 2 releases per year this is a nice development and things will improve apparently. Looks like the regular devices (tab) could be heading towards museum in another 3 years. Competition (and innovation) in the tablet area is going to be heating up. Happy to see this happen. Ubutnu runs google empire so don't be suprised if google is behind all this. This can be speeded up once OEM like Acer et al get behind this. Expect more patent trolling from patent trolls when this gets ready for market.
