The objective of Maui Shell is to deploy a convergent desktop shell with different form factors, from mobile phones and tablets to desktop computers. Maui Shell will adapt to various form factors, and there’s no need for multiple versions targeting different form factors.

Like many things in computers the term shell ia overloaded. This is Maui Shell similar to what Gnome Shell is from wikipedia: "GNOME Shell is the graphical shell of the GNOME desktop environment starting with version 3, which was released on April 6, 2011. It provides basic functions like launching applications, switching between windows and is also a widget engine. "

is this supposed to be like termux on phones

Mini review here.

Shell works on Tablets, Desktops and Smartphones.

What is it, I don’t understand what it is to be used for

termux is a shell that can be used on android, and there are various shells on desktop, so I guess this is like termux but also with the ability to run the same on both desktop and mobile? That’s interesting, although the comments on another article suggest the project is in a state of incompletion

Maui is a UI framework for KDE apps primarily aimed at smart phones or convergent applications. This is basically a whole desktop environment using Maui. Like a fork of KDE for smart phones and tablets.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
