    I'd like to see crapple & M$ crumble soon. Maybe this'll help.

    Not bothered about the crumble aspect, but would be good to see some more competition and choice.

    It's a long long way to go for them. I believe they have much much less resources than Google, Apple and Microsoft so I am not expecting a miracle. It will be a great achievements if ubuntu could survive even as an option for tablets, phones and other devices.

    This is what I've said before about Canonical/Ubuntu. Shuttleworth is trying to develop Ubuntu and making it a viable alternative to MS and Apple, maybe even Android eventually. He's had to make funding decisions which have been controversial. Personally, I think he's going in the right direction. If any Linux distro could compete with MS or Apple, it would be Ubuntu.

    I think most big distros should unite and develop a single Tablet OS. All distros have good and bad (or terrible) aspects, so creating an OS with all the goods we currently have should allow for a pretty darn good system.

    * Arch has the fastest and smartest package manager, and editing/compiling packages is the easiest here;
    * Ubuntu/Unity has the good looks and probably the best hardware compatiblity;
    * Debian has stability and the best/fastest security fixes in the Linux market, and a vast repository;
    * Fedora is always bringing new and good stuff;
    * openSUSE has the easiest AppArmor integration and the smartest GUI installation, and YAsT is by far the best GUI configuration tool out there;

    Put all these qualities in an OS and we might have a decent competitor. All we'd have to do is hope that developers set their egoes aside. Might be harder than I can imagine, though ;) Everyone is always trying to be "the first and the best", and sometimes do a poor job on it.
