This is a build with statically linked Qt, as are our .1 builds - but the static builds are usually made with gcc 2.95 for compatibility reasons.

Questions and answers: Ubuntu bq tablet

I will say this. So far I've used the Ubuntu tablet for over a week and prefer using it over any other tablet...even with its quirks. In fact, it's the first mobile device that has me comfortable being away from my trusty desktop environment. Having mobile versions of The GIMP and LibreOffice alone is worth the price of admission. It's not perfect (far from it), but it's a sleek, mobile version of Linux that works incredibly well, especially considering how young it is. Read more
