To be more specific, lets call it an idea from the perspective of a passionated user.
I just wanted to describe what i personally want from a mobile device. Since ubuntu touch is already based around the sidebar, one might think it could be well suited for this idea. But maybe i am the only one impressed by this.
I think i got the part with the top-left-os. That sounds not as easy as adding 2 lines of code.
Btw i planning to invest in a new device. On top of the list are the poco x3 pro for its screen refresh rate and the galaxy s10e for its size and build quality. For now it seems more convinient to choose the later for reaching over to the left side.
@flohack In general I'd agree, but from my understanding CB is/was opt-in - one of the reasons we got an SMS based emergency alert system instead of using CB here. But I don't suspect a government project of doing proper research, so it wouldn't surprise me if the info in the documents was wrong 😃
Since Canonical are gracefully allowing UBports to use their logo, it's probably up to them to decide whether UBports needs to join them in switching to the new version.
I could imagine them not wanting their old logo to be used anywhere. From a branding point of view, it's important to be consistent.
@hobanwashburn You came onto this forum, and created multiple threads and a comment in an already existing thread, basically ranting about how UT is not a traditional Linux distro, and telling us what we should do.
So yes, that is "stomping in." And here you are attempting to refute by doing more of the same.
There is documentation about how to contribute with development. There are chat groups. Developers actively help people. We have places to open tickets about issues. So clearly, you didn't even take the initiative to attempt to contribute.
Legacy apps aren't going to work well on a phone, and in many cases even with an external dislpay and mouse/keyboard, it will still be an inferior experience to using those apps on a real PC, even if everything was working perfectly on the UT side.
@keneda More likely I did not try hard enough when I first got the phone so I gave up as it was unimportant. The update prompted me to look again, and though not intuitive I have created a few albums for the 18 photos I keep on it.
