Ubuntu Edge: Bat shit crazy.

Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols for ZDNet:

Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu and its parent company, Canonical, is making a bet with the technology market. He’s betting that enough of you will be willing to invest in a smartphone that can double as a PC, the Ubuntu Edge, to raise the $32 million needed to manufacture it. You know what? I think he’s going to win that bet.

The premise is that they will build a phone that you can connect a monitor, a mouse, and a keyboard to, and it will boot from Android into Ubuntu Linux.

Besides the fact that desktop Linux is dead, let me ask you one simple question: How many monitors with mice and keyboards do you encounter when you go about your daily business?

Actually, let me ask one more: With all the peripherals that you find…just laying around…how many times have you wished you could just plug in your phone and get to work?

I thought so.
