It seems like one the most talked about topics as of late is Ubuntu for Android. This is the first demo of it that I've seen and I'm quite impressed.

From what I've heard you need at least a dual core to run it.

This does look sexy. I am a big fan of Ubuntu.
I find it funny that you need a dual core to run it. But it will run on laptops and desktops over 10+ years old decently well.

I tried that Backtrack install on my HTC Evo and I was not too impressed with running an operating system on my phone.. Too small or something..
I just did not find it useful.. I could see running it on a tablet though.

Your name sound familiar to me. Are you from OCC?
I feel like I have talked to you some how in the past.

If possible, I'll probably check this out on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 first. I have a spare monitor at work so it'd be pretty nice to be able to dock my tab :D I also wonder how it'll handle widgets and such.

I think I have an account on OCC but I don't actively post. I'm a developer for Neoseeker, so you've probably seen my name come up here and there as I've done some work on TA and OCC in the past.

Okeydokie. I guess it's possible I just seen your name from TA and Neo.
Let us know how it goes if/when you slap it on your Galaxy Tab. That could be pretty sick.
