Canonical founder pretty confident about Ubuntu app growth

Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth (pictured) said he is “pretty confident about the pace of the app ecosystem growth” for the Ubuntu platform in the mobile market, despite the fact that it has not so far been available in commercial devices.

“We have a platform that has not yet shipped officially on any devices, but we have hundreds of apps in the app store, and we have public commitments from guys like Evernote. Our goal is to have the top 50 apps at launch, and I think we will hit that goal,” he told Mobile World Live.
