Some of you knew this was going to happen and those who didn’t know probably expected it anyway, it seems like a logical next step for this blog. The installation process of Ubuntu Saucy A.K.A Ubuntu Touch 1.0 was fairly easy but I can see how it could seem a little intimidating for someone who is not familiar with Linux command line interface. I didn’t have too much time to play with Ubuntu today, at least not through the touch screen. I spend a lot of time connected to my phone through SSH trying to update my contacts, there seems to be some contradicting statements as to what formats work and what don’t out there so eventually I have just given up on getting my contacts from a vcf file and settled on syncing it with my google account. I thought it was kinda odd that there is no mention of getting your contacts from a SIM card though. So tomorrow I can start proper testing and see how Ubuntu handles itself as a daily driver device.
As far as this project goes it will work the same way as it did with Firefox, I will use Ubuntu as my daily driver for 30 days and report my findings here. I will also develop a simple application and try to get it in the Software Centre witch seems to be kind of non existing at the moment on Ubuntu. This time I will try my best to not go longer than three days without a post.
