This definitely does look great! I like the interface a lot! I can't wait to see how the performance scales compared to some of the other platforms. Things are certainly going to be interesting.

iOS, Ubuntu, and Android are all Linux based....so it really comes down to how well each developer can make a good UX and set up proper back end resource management.

I am currently using Ubuntu, and it's amazing! I've been using it for 4 months now, and I have only found one software I want to use which isn't compatible with Linux, but the developer said they'll be adding support soon -- however, there are alternatives out there.

I have a dual-boot set up with Windows 7, and I use Ubuntu 12.10 99% of the time. I would definitely suggest that you give it a try.
