    Post Ubuntu

    this is great news! I'm a SW dev who's been sponging of the android dev efforts of others for quite some time now (sorry I don't have time to contribute myself!) - the Ubuntu Touch project is quite interesting to me, and I hope to eventually free up some time to contribue. I'm surprised to...
