    Best to tread carefully here. I have not tried it myself, but understand that the best success has been with Nexus 7. Ubuntu has demoed their tablet version on this tablet. Other than that, my knowledge is limited. Would love to convert my Galaxy Tab over to Ubuntu as well but have not tried until it's ready for prime time.

    I'm out of luck for now with my Galaxy Tab. However, if you are just starting your search for compatible HW, then here is the site for the developer download along with a list of compatible devices. These seem to be limited to the Nexus devices at this time. Note that this is a development release, although I have no doubt that once the final version is released, it will also work with Nexus.

    The original Nexus 7 (not the new one yet as far as I know) and the Nexus 10 are the only officially-supported tablets for Ubuntu. You might be able to find both of them on clearance actually as they're superceded / about to be superceded.

    Pretty sure the new Nexus devices will be supported soon.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
