So, Ubuntu attempts to bridge mobile and desktop, and fails. Microsoft attempts to bridge mobile and desktop with Windows 8, and fails. So Apple will try, and win? In what alternate reality does that make any sense?
No. Ubuntu attempted to sell an expensive phone, largely to a demographic that doesn't purchase expensive phones. The new Ubuntu devices are coming out, just not the godly one he was wanting to produce.
Microsoft is already doing this with Windows 8. But Ubuntu and Apple are the innovators... lame...
To my knowledge, there really isn't much of a difference between Ubuntu across devices anyways, so it isn't much of a comparison until Microsoft makes one device that has both interfaces.
Uh, yeah, neither of those are acceptable specs for a laptop or desktop.
That is more than adequate for common usage.
