They were sabotaged by bad people: Stallman, Red Hat employees, etc.

Turns our Linux community is so fucking garbage that they killed the best Linux desktop of all time. Enjoy your Ubuntu GNOME Faggots.

Why didn't they go with a different name? "Ubuntu" sounds stupid and reeks of cheapness. Something branded this way was obviously DOA.

>ubuntu phone
I was really looking forward to these. Too bad they cancelled them.

>> No.64623259

Unity happened.

Ubuntu brought in a lot of Linux users, but the switch to Unity killed it on plenty of toasters among other things. So people started forking more builds and jumping to other distros. Liked Mint myself. Others went to just regular Debian, etc.

Its like that first band that gets you into music and its all you listen to, but then you find the bands that inspired them and so on until the pool of musical taste is now wider without one dominating factor.

Literally this.

Ubuntu Phone failed because it required OEMs to take financial risk when they could just stick with Android and compete on specs and looks.

Unity was the central pillar of their convergence vision, so when the phone flopped, it no longer made financial sense to sink more dev time into Unity when they could just adopt an existing DE like everyone else. Ubuntu is mostly commercially successful on the server/cloud, so of course they're refocusing their attention there.

The Amazon lens was a last ditch attempt to monetize the desktop. That backfired hard, so they probably won't be trying that again.

>What happened to them?
They were too ambitious. They made a popular distribution of a niche kernel. Good on them. But what made them think that they could be anything more than that?
