All the reviews for ubuntu phone seems to be targeted for phone users (how is the touch, gestures, scopes, etc). I am however, interested to know about this new OS as an ubuntu users.
I was wondering if I buy an ubuntu phone, what would I miss when comparing to desktop version. In particular, I am curios to know about:
- Is there a fully functional terminal?
- Is it possible to use
apt-getfor installing packages?
- Can I install desktop environments?
- Can I compile an arbitrary C++ program? I am not talking about a QT GUI application, but simple command line executable.
- Python? Lua? R? Programming languages in general?
In short, I would like to know as an ubuntu user, what are the major limitations of the phone operating system.
