    ubuntu 12.10 on nexus 7: anyone have it running?

    When I saw today that Canonical released image and wiki page on loading ubuntu 12.10 on my nexus 7, I knew what I was going to do with my evening.

    As of right now, I haven't gotten very far. It froze and I restarted my computer and nexus 7. The ubuntu nexus7 program is now stuck for a long time on "erasing boot partition".

    Has anyone else tried this? Succeeded? Failed?

    skip it unless you need an excuse to waste a couple hours worth of time, and you want to be disappointed because its laggy to no end, and extremley buggy as it's brandy new... again, skip it, unless you need an excuse to wipe and reinstall your current droid-os system.

    Keep in mind the Ubuntu for Nexus project is in the very early stages. It probably won't be ready for serious use until around the time Ubuntu 13.04 arrives.
