microsoft and apple wont let it happen, bcoz apple wants all profit from software and hardware, and microsoft simply bcoz WP are not appealing enough to mass consumers without nokia cameras and hardware
Wouldn't it be wonderful if customers could buy just a phone (as a hardware) and than choose which OS they want to install on it. That way you could have Lumia 920 with Android, Xperia Z with MeeGo or any other conceivable combination. That way we probably wouldn't have usual forum troll-wars. It would be closest to world peace humanity is ever going to get.
Well I must believe until I see it working, world is full of good ideas, but not all works in order, so, maybe this can be a DOA at any time.
Linux is not doing that good on desktops, so, this is not guarantee this will work on mobile either..
Sad but true....and Android is very hard to beat and also they need to seduce the developers to make good apps.
No it won't. A virus built for one operating system won't work on another.
ubuntu is no.1 in desktop among other linux ...i wish u to get top in mobile world also...my favrt os ever
Apple has been in the recent past a dominant giant, but with the rise of Android, it was toppled. With the rise of Ubuntu, Apple is walking on slippery grounds akin to BB. UBuntu will indeed tear the skies....big up.

Welcome To Real Linux Half PC Half Mobile Cant wait ...
Wow im looking 4 dat. We need ubuntu 4 galaxy S2 also........ All the Best.....!
seems it would be interesting, and obviously "one of a kind" from surrounding.
But wondering, will Android's virus works on Ubuntu mobile?
Ubuntu for Mobile is a Total Waste of time ...not sure why they want to do this BB10 or Windows Phone 8 is a better choice
AnonD-23733, 07 Feb 2013Hope that it will be compatible with HTC Sensation!Same ;)
Does this effectively mean that Ubuntu will be able to run on any arm7 45nm OMAP4460 SoC's? The Kindle Fire HD and the Huawei P1 fall into this category too. Maybe the SGS2 and SGNote can also run this?
I hope this os is released for more than the Galaxy Nexus.
I really don't want to buy that phone just to try this out.
That phone has no SD card slot. I'm not sure about if it has a removable battery but I just hope this Ubuntu Mobile Rom is released for a phone with SD cards and a removable battery such as the Gs3 or Note.
Has anybody started a thread over at Xda about trying to get the Rom on other devices?
AnonD-73576, 07 Feb 2013This might be a huge success, the multitasking feature are stunning & running desktop Ubun... moreno... the desktop apps wont run on ubuntu mobile...
but all the android apps can run on ubuntu mobile...
that too without any intermediate virtual machine
(a problem with android which makes it a resource guzzler)
