Ubuntu has just presented a tool to dual boot Ubuntu Touch with Android. Can a collaboration between Jolla and Ubuntu be feasible on some projects like this (http://developer.ubuntu.com/2013/12/announcing-ubuntu-and-android-dual-boot-developer-preview)?

Maybe by collaborating Jolla and Ubuntu can create a bigger alternative ecosystem (with apps compatible with both platforms) and increase chances of reaching that critical mass of users needed to become a big player.

well, why don't we just switch to ubuntu completely then, or even better, android, they already have the critical mass. [/troll]

no but seriously, if we want to make the Jolla the development hardware for everything then we need triple-or-more-boot into iOS, android, ubuntu and windows phone.

I was thinking at what Jolla declared about releasing in the future images of SailfishOS for Android phones. Maybe the possibility of dual boot can help reluctant people to try it. Who try the Jolla doesn't go back to anything else ;-)

lol true story;) with a special focus on android/ubuntu devices that makes a lot of sense suddenly.

I mean, collaborating on projects of mutual interest. Ubuntu has developed the boot loader that can be helpfull to Jolla when/if Jolla decide to publish SailfishOS images for Android phones already in the market. At the same time Canonical could collaborate on some Nemo related projects that can benefit both Jolla and Ubuntu. Just standard open source way of developing the low-level stuff but differentiating on the UI level, nothing new here.

Of course, Jolla and Ubuntu have already "collaborated", in that they're using stskeep's libhybris as the foundation for their OS... :)
