Ubuntu Mobile takes on Apple touch interface

,----[ Quote ]
| Canonical today hoped to preempt all comers today with news of Ubuntu Mobile.
| Its first Linux variant aimed at handhelds, the software is tailored for the
| Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) expected to launch in spring based on Intel's
| Silverthorne technology and is designed to recognize basic iPhone-like
| gestures such as swiping to scroll through menus and websites. A scrolling
| visual front end based on Flash or Clutter replaces the traditional Ubuntu
| desktop and is designed to be used solely with fingers, including with an
| on-screen keyboard.
