Add Tablet Touchscreen Support
Support GUI on tablet touchscreens.
Ubuntu Touch, Android, iOS are targets.
Tablets are reasonable computer replacements in some contexts. Users may expect to be able to monitor and manage on a touch screen.
Demonstrating the GUI on an Ubuntu Touch tablet is good marketing.
devop wants to monitor environment with smaller footprint, while traveling, in order to increase convenience.
- tablets have much less computing power than full computers. svgs in particular can be slow. we may have to do a lot of work to support this.
- Ubuntu touch browser is still under heavy development.
HIGH: Ubuntu touch demo story
LOW: support for all tablets in monitoring.
EVEN LOWER: support for all tablets in actually changing the environment.
