“In an interview in an advance of the official announcement,
Shuttleworth told me, that their short term plans are to make
Ubuntu 12.04, the next long term support (LTS) of their Linux
distribution, as stable as possible and to give the Unity desktop
interface, it’s final fit and polish for both home and business
Linux desktop users. After that, however, Canonical will be
expanding its popular Linux desktop to all computing devices.

“Shuttleworth said, ‘This is a natural expansion of our idea as
Ubuntu as Linux for human beings. As people have moved from desktop
to new form factors for computing, it’s important for us to reach
out to out community on these platforms. So, we’ll embrace the
challenge of how to use Ubuntu on smartphones, tablets and
smart-screens.'”
