Ubuntu Touch Will Be Usable In ‘Couple of Weeks’ Says Shuttleworth

Developers Can Shortly Use Touch OS as Daily Driver

Ubuntu Touch will be featured enough for developers to use daily within ‘a couple of weeks’, Mark Shuttleworth has said.

The current developer preview, which recently gained daily build support, comes populated with dummy data and few usable applications. Developers are not advised to use it as their primary operating system.

But not for much longer, says Shuttleworth. In an interview with Zdnet’s Ben Woods he said:

“…you can’t really use [the current developer preview] as your every day driver, but in a couple of weeks you’ll be able to.”

Does a ‘couple of weeks’ seem optimistic to you? Perhaps so, but with the momentum building behind Ubuntu Touch it’s certainly not improbable.
