@ComLarsic Don't use anbox myself, so take with several grains of salt. But perhaps you could forcibly uninstall the package and then reinstalling it. Other than that, reinstalling UT is probably a good idea.

RE: two things i see right away
The login screen is always shown in the 'native orientation' of the device it is shown on. For tablets (or more accurately any screen size that is larger than some threshold value) this will be landscape. On most phones it is portrait. The real issue is that the login screen does not rotate based on the orientation of the device. There is already a discussion about this in the issue tracker. Maybe you would like to add your experience / expectation / point of view.
The desktop issue is an interesting one. I would encourage you to check if there is already an issue raised against this on GitHub, and if not, to do so yourself. At the very least it will get the conversation going.
The Pinebook (original), PineTab and PinePhone range of devices from Pine64 seem to share much underlying hardware. But the Pine64 website itself states that: "The PINETAB is similar in both form, function and underlying ARM64 architecture to the original 11.6″ PINEBOOK."
But, be that as it may, the answer given in the Q&A stands on its own.
RE: I find the UT Linux structure both interesting and odd
I am not sure what didn't work for you concerning command line programs in Libertine. The UBports documentation mentions that doing so is possible and has a cool trick to make the experience more seamless.
For a more step by step description of the process you could go here.
Lastly, the purpose of a Libertine container is to offer the possibility to install programs from the Ubuntu archives in a 'traditional' way, i.e. via apt. But that does not directly contribute to the 'convergence aspect' of UT. Now convergence means different things to different people, but at the very least it would include the idea that applications are built with a UI to adapt to different form factors. In the case of Libertine, all it does is allow you to install applications from the repositories. Most, if not all, of these programs have not been written with different form factors in mind, so by definition they would not be convergent.
RE: On this (US) Thanksgiving...
I would like to thank this community of dedicated and passionate people for continuing this project and making it shine. I am thankful for having had the opportunity to speak to some members one on one, and even having met a few in person.
To those who watch over the long term goals of the project, those who contribute their time in all the various ways. You all know who you are. As the Dutch say: My gratitude is great.
RE: Qt binding for Go (Golang) supports Ubuntu Touch!
There are several libraries with QT bindings for Go out there. As a matter of fact
clickablealready provides a code template for writing Go apps for Ubuntu Touch. It uses @nanu-c's fork of another project.
RE: "Contacts" features improvements
If your issues are already filed, mark them as also affecting you. If they are not, then feel free to open them yourself, one issue per problem.
After doing that, if you have the time and interest, you could try implementing the features you request yourself. Because I am not sure, but it seems that the app is in need of a mainfainer.
