"Mobile and cloud." It's easy to associate these two markets in a single breath, but they have completely different requirements. Major players are going after ONE or the other not BOTH! (well, except for Microsoft)

I think it's pretty short-sighted to call your core userbase "legacy" and be seen as trying to move past it, especially when you just made a misstep with Unity. Ubuntu should be shoring up and improving the desktop, and then pick cloud *or* mobile to take on next.

... and Google.
... and Apple.
... and Amazon.

Of course, all depends on your definition of cloud, which has the nice property of being so hazy that you can see it in any shape you wish.
