Ubuntu made it's mark in the Linux world many years ago with a robust desktop interface that could bridge the gap for users not used to a command line based OS, and has just announced they are also forging ahead with a tablet OS soon to be released to developers at the Mobile World Congress this year!

They are already creating a buzz with talks of high-end multitasking ability, using apps to collaborate seamlessly with others, a more secure mobile experience, and instant launch feature, and more. I admit, it looks really awesome and I can't wait to get our hands on a device with it loaded up to take it for a test drive!

The good news for developers is it looks easy to get an app in their app store as well, you can get developer information on the Ubuntu website.
