I love this app so far. I do have one question...how do you add software? The few things that I've wanted to download have failed, like Chromium Browser and the Eclipse IDE. Is this just because it's not possible or is there a trick that I'm missing?

Thanks for the app and your hard work. I am enjoying messing with it!

the best way to add software is at the command line using apt-get install
if you need help installing programs with it just google it there is plenty of documentation for ubuntu on this matter

Thanks for three quick response. I have attempted using the tutorials but everyone says use wget but I get an error. Sorry for newbie questions. Love your work.

Apps have to be compatible with Architecture Armel.

I read that Eclipse on Ubuntu 12.x will be compatible. I wish zacthespack will include it on final release of 12

Hi guys, I need your help to make a decision around ubuntu in my xoom.

1. I need ubuntu or debian in my mz601 xoom device, but I really don't know with are the best kernel and room that would be more compatible with ubuntu.

2. What won't it be working on xoom after intalling ubuntu? Will "bluetooth, sound, external pendrive, etc..." work on?

Many thanks in advance.

Best.
