    Good luck installing Ubuntu onto your phone. The phone will probably already have Android (which is, of course, Linux) — so, soon you will be a Linux user!

    I hope you enjoy it. Let us know how the process goes.

    I recently bought Nexus 4 from Google, so would be looking forward to try Ubuntu Phone out.

    Indeed. I understand that the Ubuntu phone itself can use a terminal program as well. If I could get terminal access into the full Ubuntu operating system (or Fedora, or Debian, etc. for that matter if it was available) on a phone, I would buy my first smartphone. Just give me a command prompt so I can write code and access other devices via wifi on a device that I can carry in my pocket. I would just buy an unlocked phone (now that unlocking is illegal) and might not even subscribe to phone service.

    Re: Ubuntu phone OS

    I spoke to someone over skype and twitter that states he has a manufactured phone (similar to what they demo'd at CES) from China that is running the Ubuntu OS. He says it's awesome and he can dock it and it becomes a full featured desktop. I really wanted to get my hands on it but he said it's illegal because the phone supports 3 different SIM chips. I really wanted him to send it to me so I could create a youtube video for my channel but he won't. Maybe after the image is released by Canonical he will

    What law does that break? I presume it is in the USA?

    Unless he's actually shown you it over a video chat, he probably doesn't have it and is just lying. IIRC the phone they demo'd at CES was a Galaxy Nexus, anyway.

    Question Re: Ubuntu phone OS

    It would be great having hardware switches to turn off phone modem and wireless.
    It will work longer ( on battery ) and can be used by kids with no fear of big bill or possible radiation risk.
