Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu

Canonical has just signed its first deal to supply a smartphone with its mobile operating system, Canonical founder and product strategy leader Mark Shuttleworth revealed in an interview here at the LeWeb conference. He wouldn't say which company has agreed to use the Linux-based OS, but said it will be offered on high-end phones in 2014.

Good news.

Or you could try to get a Jolla phone and use a full linux software stack and Qt-based apps.

Ubuntu is in the process of switching Unity over to Qt for 2014. So basically all Linux based phones are going to be running Qt apps.

Not a lot actually; but the number of native apps should be growing.

Anyway, it comes with an Android VM built-in, so you can run Android apps on it too.
