Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Take this as a sign of things to come in the land of convergence. Yesterday, Ubuntu announced Ubuntu for Android. This new product basically allows you to run the entire Ubuntu Linux distribution on your Android smartphone connected to an external display and keyboard and mouse.

Well, not on an android, but on my webOS phone. Here's a screenshot with my favorite environment: Window Maker:

works nicely on my tablet too, where I use e17.

And its not scaled down either. its full blown ubuntu-arm.

I guess the news here is that ubuntu is going to support it officially. I guess that's cool.
