    Ubuntu isn't optimized for touch if you ask me, Honeycomb does a better job, although it's obviously not as feature rich as a full blown desktop OS like Ubuntu.

    I like my Android as it is. Let's see Canonical step up their game on the desktop first before they venture on to mobile devices.

    I heard this app need dual-core, so I think I can't use it.

    Its still not "real" because it will still rely on android for the phone functions.

    What we need its a true distro with gnu userspace tools for the phone functions.

    Not holding my breath though.

    "When Ubuntu is loaded on an Android phone, the two platforms share the same Linux kernel, so it's not like running two operating systems. The two pieces act like complementary partners. The Android phone functions normally when used as a smartphone or when making calls, but when it docks then the Ubuntu desktop pops up and acts like a standard computer."
