@gimenez said in Spreading Ubuntu Touch to the world:
No clear idea of what is convergence. There are no demo for it, which is a pity, because it's cool and it works! The dedicated convergence page is too long Each paragraph almost re-says the same content. They are like 5 or 6 different (and graphically unconsistent) illustrations, but no demo, and no actual picture of what is it. It is not clear if it is a whished or a working feature... Still the image of safe in the header
Simply put, convergence means shell and apps are usable across a wide range of devices, including phones, tablets, and PCs, with the same security constraints.
Given this, convergence is still therefore not complete, and there are a few related points to make:
- The Unity8 shell does not work well on PCs as of yet
- We are not able to confine security context of apps on PCs as well as on phones/tablets yet
- While Libertine can allow running legacy apps under some confinement, it is unrelated to the goals of convergence itself.
- Being able to use a phone/tablet with external screen/kb/mouse is a nice feature, and related to convergence, but is not itself convergence.
- Most native UT apps (and webapps) are only suitable for phones/tablets still, and therefore are also not convergent yet.
So, as you can see, it can be difficult to clearly present that in a very shiny way with demos and such, when it's still not yet all there.
