We've received a rather cryptic e-mail from Canonical's PR company:
"Canonical is kicking off the New Year with a bang, and launching a brand new Ubuntu product. We’ll be holding an exclusive event hosted by Mark Shuttleworth, founder of the Ubuntu project, to give full details of what we believe is the next generation of cross platform operating system."
Usually press releases get redirected to /dev/null, but a
guy dropping off a brown envelope full of non-sequential £20 notes little bird told us that this is going to be interesting. However, we don't know any more than this.
So, dear podcast listeners, what do you think:
Have we been duped into over-hyping the release of Ubuntu 13.04?
Is this going to be the tablet that Unity's been crying out for?
Some form of cloudy-virtualised-desktop thingy?
Has the Ubuntu Phone finally got a hardware partner?
Are they joining forces with Apple to release iBuntu?
Let us know your thoughts before we head off to the pub Thursday lunchtime (GMT) to
drink away our sorrows record the podcast. When we find out what's going on (Jan 2nd), we'll send out glittering prizes (books and pin-badges) to everyone who guessed correctly.
