My opinion is that there is no need for Linux Ubutnu on Primes, because I bought just because PRIME has Android OS and has features that no laptop! And more like Prime with Android OS because it is function of the sea than no have a laptop with Windows, Mac or Linux Ubuntu. Some of the features that I like on my To: Touchscreen, Bluetooth, trackpad, sensor (ALS, Gyroscope, Accelerometer, GPS, magnetometer), shutdown, reboot, no need for always shotdown and wait time for the system start, It is great for work and playing games, two cameras, GPS, BATTERY LIVES IS MUCH BETTER THAN IN LAPTOPS and lot more options.
You might think so, but maybe somebody else needs applications/services that aren't available for Android. (for me especially apache, mysql-server, ...)
Tablets are great, but I would really like to have the opportunity to boot into a linux if I'm on a train and get some work done.
And a full linux on a lightweight, thin and amazing device with touchsupport if I need it, would be amazing.
I'm really looking forward to it and thanks so much for working on it guys.
the version people are using on this thread is a very old, leaked, unstable version. call it a 'proof of concept'. this version is not being actively worked on. it was not intended for release. it is a use-at-your-own-risk option.
for what is actually happening, see this;
this is the most recent public 'snapshot' of what is being developed. currently, it is in a closed beta testing stage. so no, you cant get your hands on it just yet.
from what i gather, lilstevie and androidroot.mobi want to release this with as much stability as possible. im not sure if you followed ubuntu on the tf101, but the initial release was riddled with issues/complaints/people-who-couldnt-follow-instructions and i imagine lilstevie doesnt want to have to deal with all this all over again. (lilstevie can slap me in place if im incorrect, you are just so damn mysterious man)
we are all waiting patiently, and in the end we will receive something much more stable than what is provided on this thread.
hope this clears some things up.
