Canonical's track record of abandoning projects:

- Unity
- Upstart
- Mir
- Support for a bunch of derivatives
- Ubuntu Phone/Touch
- Ubuntu for Android
- ...

Still a good distro, but in case you wondered why I twitch briefly whenever I hear their name... now you know 😆

Thing is... even though their Ubuntu Phone may never have seen widespread adoption, it's actually been a good product. I've seen it, I personally know people who worked on it. I held it in my hands. It was really good!

If Canonical didn't manage to pull off this feat, I have little hope anyone else will. That means we'll have only a few closed source options in the predominating computing market of the near future: mobiles.

Hooray.

I know it won't see wide adoption at all but I'm still hyped to get my Purism 5 phone. I don't believe I can fully switch to it but I'm happy to try!

The idea of an open source OS phone is alluring.
