    Isn't Unity "Ubuntu Touch"?
    • I think Ubuntu Touch refers to the UI/distro created by Canonical for smartphone and tablet. Itcertainly draws some of its' idea from unity. IMHO, unity itself is actually aimed at small screen devices such as netbook

        Unity looks like a touch interface. As a netbook owner, I ditched it because it was bad compared to Gnome. And Canonical's release for 11.04 stated Unity was "inspired by smartphone and tablet design thinking."
