The reason Ekoore Python S tablet that running with ubuntu using Desktop environment Gnome Shell, because Gnome-Shell is designed more ‘touch friendly’ than Unity. It has big chunky window controls; managing and opening apps via the Activities Overlay is easier, and, perhaps importantly, it sports an elegant pop-up on-screen keyboard in the form of ‘Caribou‘.
