Linux Remember that guy who got Meego to run on his HTC HD2 ? Well, he's at it again, now booting Meego on a Nexus S. He also ran Ubuntu on it shortly thereafter.

I saw this a few days ago and from what I've seen of Meego it does look very interesting.

I own an original Motorola Droid and wish I could install Meego on it for a few days to try it out. Makes me wish I knew Linux better to try to port it myself.

This is good but how about someone gets the iOS work on a non Apple hardware ;)

Why would you want that, since iOS sucks ;)

I'd rather have a MeeGo Debian based version myself.

... there's not much to see here, as 90% hw is still not supported. I'm affraid when it is the phone will be dead obsolete.

Well, It does show how difficult it could be to get all the hardware supported. Difficult enough for me to not need to try it.

It will only be completed if the current dev really wants to, as there really isn't too much of a compelling reason for a large number of people to want meego or ubuntu on a Nexus S.

It's already Linux, it is why the basis is as easy. You just need to cross compile the OS for arm and run it on top the the low level android stack (kernel). They are incompatible just because of the C library, nothing else.

It is not even a port, just a plain Linux install.
