The independent project UBports wants Ubuntu-Touch and Unity independent of Canonical alive. The explained project manager Gripsgård on G +. In the past UBports has adapted Ubuntu Touch to different smartphones.
The Ubuntu community project UBports has adapted Ubuntu Touch to the Smartphone models One Plus One, Nexus 5 and Fairphone 2 in the last two years. The Fairphone 2 with Ubuntu Touch was able to present Gripsgård at the Ubuntu booth at the MWC 2017 in Barcelona. Gripsgård was able to show the implementation for Xperia Z1 and OnePlus One there the year before. Other adjustments, such as the Nexus 5x, 6, 7, 9 and 10 as well as the Optimus L90, Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2 LTE are under construction. This would be a shock to yesterday’s announcement of Mark Shuttleworth, Ubuntu Touch, Unity and Mir, to project manager Marius Gripsgård.
Still in the night he explained in an initial brief statement on G +, trying to want to keep Ubuntu Touch and Unity alive. This is not easy, as he emphasizes, but at the moment there is still sufficient momentum to breathe the Ubuntu Touch development back in January. He also announced that new ideas from the UBports team could be expected in the coming weeks.
