I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 running off a 4gb pen drive because my hard drive crashed. Cool

Is anybody impressed? Eh?

Nope. Given I can run that same build on my phone off a micro sd, color me unimpressed.

I'm intrigued.

What kind of phone?

How much space is on the micro sd? You've done this? It works with touch? Eh?

Nexus One and my G2. I have an 16GB SD card, I want to say the install takes about 4 total, if that.

It has been a while, I only did it to say I did it sort of thing. But if you head over to xda-developers.com, hop into the forums and look under android development for a specific device, odds are someone has a walk thru for it.

If you tell me what device, I could even link it for you.

Android runs a linux kernel as is, it's not really a huge jump.

the HTC HD2 runs ubuntu on it and everything works. right now iv read that the HD2 runs it the best but there are a few others that can also run it on the phone. the best way it just run it off a thumb drive on a computer because using a touch screen to navigate the OS on a small screen kinda sucks.
