Recently the Ubuntu newswires have been buzzing with the news that we have won our first smartphone partner.
Now, let’s get the elephant in the room out of the way – I am not telling you who it is. It is not my place here to share confidential details about business-to-business relationships such as this. Rest assured though, I know the folks working on these relationships and there is a tremendous amount of opportunity for Ubuntu in these discussions; OEMs, carriers, ISVs and more are very interested in exploring Ubuntu for future products.
This is…spoiler alert…fantastic news.
But what does this news really mean for Ubuntu, and to what extent do our community play a part? Let’s dig into this a little bit.
