This improvements will be also implemented on the desktop version of Ubuntu, due to the fact that the developers are working hard to reach full desktop-mobile convergence somewhere between the releases of Ubuntu 14.10 and Ubuntu 15.04 (between October 2014 and April 2015).

You can install and test the Ubuntu Touch Core apps or only the Calendar, Calculator and the Music applications on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr and Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, via some third party repositories.
