Ubuntuist - Completely

Testing shinny Ubuntu 14.04 amd64 is really cool, it's considering NOT stable, but very usable. I have been GOOGLIST for a long time, trapped into " google jail " by using, google, email account, online contact, google drive, blogger, google-chrome, android smart phone . I have been looking for alternatives, at least for smart phone, I can either pick windows phone, Firefox OS, ubuntu touch up, and browser. Well, I can say google-chrome is innovative web browser, at least on design, simple and clean. Any other web-browser look like, following google design. Just see the metaphore of Firefox Design, Internet Explorer, Epiphany. Ubuntu introducing new comer ( from gnome 3 camp I Think ), a shinny WEBAPP , the Name is vague why they did not named i.e "Columbus, Voyager or other more sexier name "

Browser / webapp

Minimalis browser is default browser running on ubuntu touch. No released device "yet" up to the point of time this article published, but development preview lives on many of Nexus Devices : Maguro, Mako, Hammerhead. This webapp running very nice on ubuntu 14.04 amd64 (x86) platform. Seems ubuntu working hard to port an Hybrid app for all devices, PC, SmartPhone, Tablet. Currently I used epiphany the gnome web-browser, which renammed to web and the sister named "Browser"

No linux or developer skill needed, just a will to read many of tutorial on the web, super dupper easy, unless to wanna to flash Non Nexus Devices, then a work hard is must.
