  • Ubuntu Touch Still Has the Best and Most Complete App Permissions

    App permissions is a feature that's now present in pretty much all the major mobile operating systems, but Ubuntu has the best implementation available right now.

    The Ubuntu operating system is one of the first to have introduced incremental app permissions, but because it wasn't made available worldwide like all the others, this particular feature has gone by unnoticed, even if it promised much better user control.

A lot of those objections are no longer valid. Linux is solid, stable, free for the most part and has become as easy to navigate as Windows. And those old apps are all grown up now. You may have skipped over previous Linux articles we’ve run, but don’t skip this one. We’re not going to crow about Linux like it’s something brand new, because we both know it has been on your radar screen for 20+ years.
