Ubuntu Linux Now Runs on Your Nexus S Smart Phone!

Ubuntu Linux is really something isn't it?. I mean it started with the PC and Laptops and the later went on to grab the Netbook market. Now according to some of the xda developers, they've found a way to run this on the latest Google phone the Nexus S!. This OS however is not the default Ubuntu Linux but a xda customized version which is at the 0.3 version currently (which is especially made out to run on HTC HD2).

Now according to them it isn't perfect yet and the touch screen is not working yet (ouch  - after all isn't that the most important part of your smart phone these days...). But don't worry since this customized Ubuntu won't replace the current anderiod OS on the Nexus S. So if anything goes wrong or you don't like it then just simply remove it.

Wi-Fi and 3G seems to be working at the moment. And if you're using the older Nexus One then you will have to use or build your own Kernel package at the moment otherwise it won't work since it is only for the "S" at the moment.
