Ubuntu Touch on a Nexus 7 not worth installing just yet

A user recently tried Ubuntu Touch OS on a Nexus 7 with better results than anticipated, but still not worth the trouble of a new operating system. Cons: Lag when loading apps (just opening the calculator took 7 seconds), horrible battery life, and screen spasms when trying to do to many things at once. Pros: Easy installation with no hiccups, easy, short tutorial on how to work it (given you’re familiar with Linux systems), and a “peppy” web browser with a sleek keyboard. Overall though, he argues it’s not ready for day to day use.
