Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Images and open source code for the Touch Developer Preview of Ubuntu will be published on Thursday 21st February, supporting the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4 smartphones. They are intended for enthusiasts and developers, to familiarise themselves with Ubuntu's smartphone experience and develop applications on spare handsets. Tools that manage the flashing of the phone will be available on the same day in the Ubuntu archives, making it easy to keep a device up to date with the latest version of the Touch Developer Preview." Cool. Too bad it's only for Nexus phones, and not for more popular ones.

I hate how iOS doesn't support MicroSD so Apple can charge extortion prices for the 32GB versions

I'm not quite following your train of logic. Neither the Galaxy Nexus nor the new Google Nexus devices have a micro sd slot. Even if Ubuntu phones come out (which, like you, I also doubt) who's to say they'll have any micro sd slots in them? I hate this as much as you do but, in point of fact, it doesn't matter one bit if the os supports micro sd if the devices aren't coming equipped with sd hardware. It's a damn shame to see Google following this trend, but they have done so and where the big guys go, a lot of little guys often follow.
