The folk at Ubuntu has announced Ubuntu for Tablets.

The moment this thing is installable on our Tabs mine is getting the treatment.

Thumbs up Canīt wait for this to happen !
Iīve been using ubuntu for years on small netbooks and laptops, if they get it to work properly on our "tabs" then it would become a serious alternative to android !

Re: Ubuntu for Tablets Anounced
I'm curious when exactly we're going to get a download option to get this going.

Maybe after MWC which is the 25th of this month... Check out is where I see that.

I would love to see this on our Tab, but considering the low-end requirements...

I don't mean to be a buzzkill, but this will probably never see the light of day on our tabs. We do have a Desktop Ubuntu ARM port, and a fully working Linux kernel for other OSes but even with everything in front of us, I doubt it will happen.

I think the only way we could get it is if someone takes the source code and probably do some crazy mods to it to get it to it to make it work for our tabs.

I am quite the optimist so here's to hoping!

They will publish a porting guide in, so there is a lot of hope!
