    I am more interested in seeing which devices this will be ported to, the Nexus 7 is pretty close to the transformer prime, so hopefully I can try this out on my tablet soon after release.

    5:19 "Now add a keyboard and mouse, suddenly your tablet is a full PC, running thousands of Ubuntu desktop apps and ALL WINDOWS APPS AS A THIN CLIENT"

    What does that Windows part mean?
    Note that its running as a thin client - presumably against a windows machine somewhere else - or Citrix.... or similar.

    To get a terminal command to put its output into a file use this format
    {terminal command} > {filename}

    Re: ubuntu tablet coming today?

    I happen to have a Nexus 10 and am VERY excited about this...

    I have been using some RDP apps to access my desktop and they work very well... but having it installed (and supported) on the tab would be ideal.

    My question is... is there a repo that has any current desktop apps compiled for ARM? In the video I see some icons... GIMP for one (Oooo that would be nice).. but not sure if that is just a mock up.

    In an ideal world, (and I think I read somewhere it would be possable soon) we would be able to run Android apps in linux. Then a tablet running ubuntu would truely rule as top dog.

    Imagine having your "regular" linux app running and being able to load an android app in the panel on the right..... very cool.

    That sounds so weird, considering that Android is Linux. But I know what you mean.

    It would need to run in a sandbox, I think, because of the malware within the many Android apps.

    I do pref Linux... always have... but more is better and there is already a ton of Android apps out there... don't close the door on more choises.... esp if they are free.

    After all.... android is a close cousin... and family should stick together

    Re: ubuntu tablet coming today?

    I'm keen to give it a try on my Nexus 7 as, despite all the positive comments from everyone, I don't rate highly. One thing bothers me though - does the ubuntu OS handle the 3G side of things - I read somewhere that the previous Dev versions did not.
