Default Ubuntu Touch On the G2

http://www.engadget.com/2013/10/17/a...available-now/

I know we are still a community very young here in the G2 forums but I think some Ubuntu goodness would be good to have as a choice. The stable version just launched for the Nexus 4. I've no deving experience but it'd be cool if a dev could take a look and see if it's possible to do a port

Not to burst the bubble but, at least on the N7, it's totally unstable, and unusable.
Support Your Local Android Developer. That stuff* is HARD!

Doesn't mean development can't start. Get the groundwork in place so when the Ubuntu Touch source is more refined, then a full-fledged ROM won't be much far away.

More options is a good thing even if they have maturing to do.

Personally, I'm interested in seeing how the docking-as-a-desktop thing will perform considering the specs of this phone being so nice.

For what i understand, that's why they haven't officially released it for tablets yet.

Buy some Unix/Linux books and start reading. Develop it yourself if it's that important to you!
