Sign of the times, Estel. Like capacitive touchscreens. Just gotta live with it. Or wait it out. The bubble may burst eventually.

I am interested in this, but I have heard that ubuntu touch doesn't support X and wouldn't be able to run anything not developed specifically for it (qt or whatever... not a coder myself...)

Is there any chance we could see an "easy debian-like" environment for UT? Without that, and without a stylus, I don't see the point.

A samsung galaxy note running maemo would be my dream device,

if ubuntu will use newer wayland, xwayland will work out of the box then.

Ubuntu for Phone using Mir.

I concur. A samsung galaxy note With maemo would rule. Even one with ubuntu, sail or tizen would rock n roll.

So... if this was a pc I would just uninstall Mir and unity and replace it with something else. But since this is a phone, i'm guessing its not as simple as adding the maemo repositories and installing X and hildon, right?

I don't get why you'd think this has anything to do with desktop. Not only it doesn't have X or Wayland, but it also doesn't allow multitasking.

You'd be much better off with Neo900/Pyra or even SailfishOS (Jolla) once XWayland is ported (I think that all works except for touch input for now).

EDIT: I'm not even sure if Ubuntu Touch uses Mir - last time I checked, it used Android's compositor SurfaceFlinger, but this news is almost 2 years old, so it might have changed.

X11 apps can be persuaded to run via XMir, that sort of thing is still in pretty active development though and not yet ready for prime time.

That said Will Cooke already managed to get Libre Office running directly on the phone: https://plus.google.com/+WillCooke/posts/eNUArFBzh3W
