Canonical has struck its first partnership to provide the Ubuntu Touch operating system to a maker of phones, reports CNET. Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth told CNET that its mobile Linux operating system will appear on high-end smartphones next year, though he didn't name the manufacturing partner. Shuttleworth also said the company is in discussions with other manufacturers. "We are now pretty much at the board level on four household brands. They sell a lot of phones all over the world, in emerging and fully emerged markets, to businesses and consumers," he said. Ubuntu Touch OS is based on Linux and has a number of core apps already developed. Canonical released version 13.10 of the OS and a software developers kits in October. Ubuntu Touch will be competing against other up-and-coming operating systems, such as Firefox OS, Tizen, and Jolla.

This is awesome

and it's going to happen, eventually, but no-matter-what.

The free-software movement will create a phone operating system, and it will be just so much better than these marketing focused and spyware riddled OSes, that people will forget all about that green robot that focus-studies so damn well.
