They’re not the first open source framework to venture into the mobile OS realm – Mozilla have already made their contributions.

The user experience has certainly lent inspiration from the more popular OS (namely iOS and Android) but that’s the one advantage to playing catch up – identifying the qualities and flaws then building on them.

Hats off to Inayaili León and the rest of the Canonical team on the lovely page design too. Clean, uncluttered and organised.
