not done yet with Ubuntu 13.10. In addition to the launch announcement with downloads and special with news, missing by talking about Ubuntu 13.10 Touch The Ubuntu for mobile devices today also premiered stable. The first stable version, to make matters worse. But …
However, Ubuntu 13.10 Touch is like one of those dinners tag to invite only certain personalities: sure the food is scrumptious, but most people will be left without trying it. The same happens with Ubuntu Touch.
Although more daring users and developers trying Ubuntu Touch walk a while (see devices), only four devices are officially supported: Samsung Galaxy Nexus, LG Nexus 4 ASUS Nexus 7 and Samsung Nexus 10 , two smartphones and two tablets.
What’s more, the Ubuntu installation instructions would pale Touch any user of Arch Linux.

walk and it sounds like Chinese to settle a ROM of Android, this would sound a Klingon. We can only hope, then, that the first Ubuntu Touch models coming to market , if the system aims to be more than an alternative suitable only for geeks (said with all due respect, I I hope they make a hole).
Edge was a missed opportunity, perhaps too ambitious, but clearly ideal for Canonical introdujese their own hardware. A pity that the goal is not reached.
