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 have seen people porting Android to N900 phones but no one ported Maemo over to Nexus or other Android devices.

Granted not Maemo/Meego but the successor Mer/Nemo. See also Plasma Active and JollaMobile ports.

That comment about ssh -X was a joke, who in their right mind wants a monster like Xwindows on a phone?

It works fine, fast, stable on the N9 for example.

They really should wait for Wayland.

Till 2020? X11 ans fb already work today and yesterday. They can also reuse Android.

Even Gnome/Unity with gtk+ for framebuffer would be better.

GTK+ is far from ready or usable on mobile. That's why Clutter came but it got aborted by Intel. QML is it then. Works good with GNOME libs too as Canonical shows.

As usual, your knowledge of Nokia and related is flawed - N9 itself hardly works fine or stable, overall
