    I don't think that it is available to the general public yet.
    For information reguarding ubuntu on devices: http://www.ubuntu.com/devices

    More specifically: http://www.ubuntu.com/devices/android

    Go and visit this post at XDA Developers - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2171786. Even though it has been discontinued, it gives the goods and instruction to backup your current rom and install UTO. It's only the Alpha 1 release, so nothing works. It's just cool to have a bit of a look around. I personally can't wait until the Beta Dailies start. So, hopefully

    Also, go and have a look at http://www.onexroot.com. There they have all the know how of what you seek inregards to HTC, presuming you have a One X or variant of. Personally I've found my HTC One X absolutely fantastic, and one of the easiest phone to work with. Though its only down fall is it's compatability with linux. But a quick search through XDA Forums and it was fixed.

    All of that information is for the HTC One, not the HTC Desire HD which is the phone the OP has.

    Ubuntu Touch isn't available for the HTC Desire HD. You can see a list of currently supported devices here...
