Canonical says that people want to hear their music whether setting at a laptop or riding the subway home from work, and that's what they hope to allow users to do with Ubuntu 10.10.

On Sunday, Ubuntu 10.10 is supposed to be released, and for the first time Ubuntu One file syncing and sharing service will be available on the iPhone and Android, and there's a beta for Windows users.

The Register's Gavin Clarke has the story.

"Rolling the file-sharing capabilities of Ubuntu One out to Android, iPhone and Windows PCs means you can now sync and play your tunes on these non-Ubuntu machines for the first time," Clarke reported. "It follows Apple's iTune that runs on Windows in addition to its native Mac, iPhone and iPad."

Canonical vice president of business development Steve George told The Register, "In music, people want to play their music at work and home. One of the big use-cases was people wanting to listen to music on their way home. So we have done mobile streaming."
