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.

That comment about ssh -X was a joke, who in their right mind wants a monster like Xwindows on a phone? They really should wait for Wayland. Even Gnome/Unity with gtk+ for framebuffer would be better.

The Nokia n9 is using xorg and it actually runs really well. Smooth and responsive. But I agree that Wayland is probably better for a phone.

N9 generally doesn't really run well at all... http://www.mobile-review.com/review/nokia-n9-2-en.shtml
(of course, that's quite possibly not due to Xorg)
