im just looking into not using libertine and just running apps like so from a terminal

  • ubuntu-app-launch firefox

I found it quite fast, quite solid and just a tad rough round the edges, bit cant see no reason why unity 8 wont be available soon on the desktop. I find this great bearing in mind ive been using the phone for around 2 years and now the tablet, I can use the same OS im familiar with on my laptop as well! Check out a quick update video.

 

are you thinking convergence?

if your thinking of trying convergence using ubuntu touch and ubuntu unity 8 you will need two things

and ubuntu touch on you phone or tablet, if its supported! nexus 4/5 or seven and others are suported

dont forget this is early days, the phone / tablet stuff is pretty solid but the last piece of the jigsaw the desktop isnt going to be ready till at least the end of 2015 🙂

happy hacking
