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.

Unity does though. So the only way it could work if X is running in parallel with Android graphical stack. And that is only possible if there are X.org drivers available.


AFAIK most of Ubuntu (including Gtk3/Gnome3) uses Cairo ( http://cairographics.org/ ) which is not limited to X.
