Welcome to the UBports community! Introduce yourself here!
This is Nikhil from India. I am using Ubuntu Linux since last 5 years on my desktop and laptop. I also own Ubuntu Phone BQ Quaris E5 HD and using it as daily driver since last 1 year. Thanks to UBPorts for showing spirit of keeping Ubuntu Touch alive.
Hi, I'm Walter from Barcelona, Spain. I use a Bq Acquaris E5 HD with UT as my only smartphone, and I think it is the best phone I ever had. I hope we can keep these phones and others, and also complete the convergence one day. Keep up the good work, I will try to help as much as I can.

My name is Jaime (Jame not the Bond one). I'm from Portugal and member of Ubuntu-pt.
I want to get more involved in this project although I have little technical knowledge. I have a Fairphone with Ubuntu Touch that I like a lot. I hope I can help expand the project by disseminating it by the means I have.

@Jaime Hi Jaime, how does UT work on Fairphone?
Hello to all. I am Gabriele from Italy. I'm NOT a developer, I'm NOT a code expert, I'm NOTa geek ... but I love UT! (I own one of the first Aquaris E4.5). Thanks to everyone who can keep alive this operating system
Hi i'm Alessio from Italy
I use a Bq Acquaris E5 HD with UT as my only smartphone
I'm not a developer, I'm just a user. I still hope to be able to help
Thank you all for your work
hi, Andrew here. I use Ubuntu desktop and Ubuntu phone via an MX4 and just found out about Ubports. I've found Touch a bit mediocre to date, with a few too many niggles, and had heard Canonical had stopped, but seeing Ubports has renewed my interest! I just had a quick look at a few of the forums and appreciate you have some foundations to lay, but hopefully in time there will be some good development. I will see if I can do some testing in due course, if that helps (though I'm no Linux/Ubuntu expert by any means)
** Good luck **
I'm Ronnie (ronnietucker) and I'm the founder and editor of Full Circle Magazine (http://fullcirclemagazine.org). Now in its tenth year, FCM (as we fondly call it) is a free PDF magazine for all things Ubuntu. Including Touch.
I also do artwork. Both real world (pencil, watercolour, etc.) and digital (GIMP, MyPaint, etc.) and I'm hoping to install the UBports Touch on my M10 FHD.
If there's anything I can do to help just let me know.
I'm Erik from Germany and I've been following Ubuntu on my desktop since 9.04 and UT since it's beginning, bought an bq e4.5 and unfortunately sunk it in a river -.-
I've been watching UBports since it's beginning and allways wanted to contribute so i tried porting to an old tablet lying around (Samsung galaxy tab gt-p1000) however I'm not a dev so i couldn't even get it to build. Then time was running out and canonical came out with the bad news but UBports made me hope again so I want to try to help any way i can to make this project live on and succeed in the end ;-P.
For this purpose i would like to combine my introduction with a proposal to all those who like me can neither help on the code side nor with money: Why not try to help with documentation? I'll open up a new thread with details for my proposal since it is a little off-topic here...
Thanks to all those who contributed or/and are still contributing to the idea or show their solidarity!

I'm Peter. I've used Ubuntu for over ten years and Ubuntu Touch on my M10 HD ever since it was launched and love both. I'm not a dev but am keen to see Touch thrive and grow. Hoping the same for Unity. As an end-user I'm keen for your project to be successful. If I can do anything I will. At least I'll be cheering you all on.

I'm Mikhael, web developer from Siberia. Using Ubuntu Touch as my only phone OS for about two years now. So, first of all, thanks to the awesome community for keeping UT progressing, i'm now using Nexus 5 and it's great with latest OS images!
Currently I'm developing Seabass text editor, but once I have more time I'd like to participate in developing other apps as well.

My name is Bjarne alias nfsprodriver. Before UT came onto the market with the bq e4.5 I was fascinated in this OS. Since the e4.5 I use and love UbuntuTouch. Because of the knowledge of FirefoxOS running WhatsApp via the webapp LoquiIm, I started the work to port it to UbuntuTouch and got some great help and supporters - partly from here ;-). Anyway, now I'm on Nexus 5 with UT and test it and some different cool projects. I hope I can give a part of work into this great community!

Hello All, Just saying hello to fellow users of UT. Its good to see its being kept going. I have Bq 5hd and m10 fhd and an mx4 that is flashed back to Flyme. I'm not a developer or techy person but will try to help where I can even if its just testing the legacy images. Thanks to all those that can and are keeping this project alive.

Hello to the UBports teams!
I am very happy to see that you carry the project in its continuity despite the stop (completely innappropriate) of Canonical.
I am French and I follow you every day in search of novelty of all kinds.
For now I will try the "turbo" image on my Meizu Prop 5, I have two pro 5, one to do the test and the other for the daily.

Bonjour à l'équipes UBports !
Je suis tèlement heureux de voir que vous portez le projet dans sa continuité malgré l'arret (completement innapproprier) de Canonical .
Je suis Français et je vous suis tous les jours à la recherche de nouveauté en tous genre.
Pour le moment je vais essayer l'image "turbo" sur mon Meizu Prop 5, je possede deux pro 5, un pour faire les test et l'autre pour le quotidien.
i bought a nexus 5 .... 10 minutes ago to flash it... i am keen/excitedly/agog/cocked....how i able to run it with Mr. Marius magic-device-tool. So i am in the celluar-phone-environment a realy greenhorn DAU. i was never interested in the properitary stuff from Android...so much closed areas
By now with the ingenuous approachable communicativ ubport-people...its make fun to go ahed and GNU a litte bit

i guess i‘m still not that relevant here - i’m not yet an UBports or Ubuntu Touch user yet, neither Android or Tizen, but i’m quite curious about the potential UBports can have everywhere (smartphones, tablets, smart-tvs, game consoles, etc.)
I'm a dreamer. I'm here to help UT community and bring gnu/linux + Libre projects to mobile devices. Thank you.
