    Ubuntu Forums for Nexus 7 is live!


    We are right around the corner (Feb 21) for the Touch Preview of Ubuntu and we are pretty excited to get out hands on it. As of right now the company hasnít discussed any hardware partners for the final version of the OS, but itís expected to be compatible with a variety of ARM-powered tablets from 6″ to 20″. Anyone going to be snatching up the touch preview?

    Available Feb 21

    Looks very promising doesn't it? I'm really looking forward to the official release.

    They certainly make it look spectacular. I'll give it a whirl.

    I've been using Ubuntu on my desk-top computer for a couple of years now, and really love it. This seems like it will be a step or three beyond what anybody else is doing with tablets/phones. I might just upgrade to Ubuntu instead of Android 4.2.2. I'll wait and see how it works out for some other users before deciding.

    I want to see how they handle the OTG interface with the USB.

    I also use Ubuntu on my desktop although I hardly use my desktop... Lol. This video is sweet though... Looks like a powerful OS! I'm tempted to try it....

    I figure I've got nothing to lose running it on the 7. A little hesitant on the phone, because I need it to be fully functional/reliable.

    Shades of the Asus PadFone towards the end of the video. It looks nice, but the on-screen keyboard looked like a major step back. I'm too hooked on Thumb Keyboard to settle for the one displayed in Ubuntu. I was a loyal Ubuntu desktop fan until Unity and Ubuntu's latest privacy issues with the Amazon lens, etc., but I must say - impressive video! Especially Mark Shuttleworth's belt buckle!
