A year ago, I was about ready to write off Ubuntu as a Linux distribution for end-users – and I did for a while, when I switched to Linux Mint. (I’ve since learned to love Ubuntu again.) Today, though, Canonical appears committed to pursuing the consumer market with renewed vigor, targeting not just desktops but also tablets, smartphones and TVs as part of what some representatives are framing as a the ???Ubuntu convergence story.??? Will it succeed?
