A Peek Inside 2buntu
Sept. 21, 2013, 2:20 p.m. by Nathan Osman

Most Ubuntu blogs these days are running WordPress. So it may surprise a number of our readers to learn that we actually run our own custom blogging engine. Very little has been said here regarding our platform and how we run things under the hood, so I thought it might be worthwhile to go into a bit of detail. History ...

New API - and an Apology
Sept. 18, 2013, 7:55 a.m. by 2buntu.com

First an apology: we sincerely regret the brief period of downtime last night. Actually, it was closer to a few hours. This was caused by a database migration that succeeded and an attempt to restart the website that failed. Therefore the code thought the database was in a different state than it actually was. Hopefully all of this has been ...

I took the post on Mir down. And it won't be going back up. I'm also going on a break from blogging here. I need time to think and get some things together.

What will happen after the Ubuntu Edge campaign failed?
Aug. 22, 2013, 10:15 p.m. by Howard Chan

This is a question that's left to be answered by both Canonical and the Ubuntu Touch community: What will happen after the Ubuntu Edge campaign failed (well, it failed in terms of reaching it's goal, but I will consider it successful)? Ubuntu Touch is growing better and better. Jono Bacon, Canonical Ubuntu community manager, clearly re-emphasized the goals for the ...

Ubuntu Edge is now $695
Aug. 8, 2013, 1:17 p.m. by Roland Taylor

We still predict that Edge is likely to fail unless Canonical gets the backing of some major commercial entities. We had said that Canonical needs to introduce more incentives to win more backers, and it seems like they've come to the same conclusion. Edge is now available at $695 (US, of course). This should give those who are just able ...

Granted, the linked example wasn't really a prediction but rather a joke that actually ended up becoming reality. This time we have some more serious numbers to put forward. The Ubuntu Edge has exactly seventeen days remaining and as of right now, requires ...

Where do two surfaces meet?
July 18, 2013, 11:18 a.m. by Roland Taylor

That is the question many in the Ubuntu community and blogosphere are asking. My guess? A phablet. Running Ubuntu Touch. But, I could be wrong. I for one, like to wait and see, and that I shall do.

Ubuntu Touch Unlock Mockup
July 2, 2013, 8:16 p.m. by Roland Taylor

Lucas Romero Di Benedetto, a designer with a penchant for dreaming of the next big thing in Ubuntu design, has dreamt up something that this time, might just become reality. Take a peek at this: It's a proposal for a revolutionary method of unlocking the phone/tablet, which would work somewhat like a safe. The best part is, the Ubuntu developers ...
