Unity and the Ubuntu Phone are dead.

We are wrapping up an excellent quarter and an excellent year for the company, with performance in many teams and products that we can be proud of. As we head into the new fiscal year, it’s appropriate to reassess each of our initiatives. I’m writing to let you know that we will end our investment in Unity8, the phone and convergence shell. We will shift our default Ubuntu desktop back to GNOME for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

Shuttleworth is back to driver seat. Sad that they ditched Unity. Ubuntu Phone could have become a niche alternative to the established players.
