There has been a lot of interest in the Linux community about the upcoming release of the Ubuntu Touch OS. In August the Ubuntu Edge crowd sourcing campaign didn’t reach its goal of raising $32 million dollars in a month. What it did raise was over $12.8 million dollars and a lot of interest from the phone and tablet makers. The word was finally put out that it will be released along side Ubuntu 13.10 on October 17th. You can get a good idea of what Canonical’s vision for their mobile OS is from the tablet and phone videos they released earlier in the year.
