Thing is... even though their Ubuntu Phone may never have seen widespread adoption, it's actually been a good product. I've seen it, I personally know people who worked on it. I held it in my hands. It was really good!
If Canonical didn't manage to pull off this feat, I have little hope anyone else will. That means we'll have only a few closed source options in the predominating computing market of the near future: mobiles.
@fribbledom @fence Videos of recent builds of Windows on ARM running on Lumia 950 hardware are interesting glimpses into a world of true pocket computing. If even Microsoft wasn't able to dribble the mobile device ball long enough to bootstrap the vision of a full computer in your pocket, this is a weird timeline.
(I've got a few more important things to get off my old Lumia, then I'm hoping to install the Windows on ARM myself.)
