Congrats: Exciting Changes!

  • After reading the blog this morning from March 29, I'm super excited and wanted to share my enthusiasm.

    Just this morning I was looking into trying to build the Ubuntu image on a newer kernel for my Nexus 5. It's way outta my league, honestly, since I'm a history teacher and spend almost all the rest of my time with my family and staying marginally fit (and am Linux newbie). Thing is, unity 8, mir, snaps and convergence just capture my fascination.

    So, my excitement is due to the announcement that lineage 14.1 (Android 7.1.1) will soon be the new base for ubports, and there will be a jump to Ubuntu 16.04. This is really exciting. Though the Nexus 5 is no longer a top performing device, the new changes will still, supposedly, apply? There's a lineage 14.1 for the Nexus 5, so I'm really excited to see where this goes.
