When Canonical decided to halt the development of Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system, it came as a surprise to many. However, due to the lack of interest of smartphone manufacturers and community, this tough decision was taken. Later, UBPorts decided to take up the Ubuntu Touch development work.

Down the line when Librem 5 open source smartphone’s development work started gaining momentum, and it partnered with GNOME and KDE projects, the community members also expected a possible collaboration with UBPorts as well. Fortunately, that partnership has seen the daylight.


So glad to see the open source phone is still trying to get off the ground. Keep it up Linux Geeks.
