Android Meet Ubuntu, Ubuntu Meet Android
Two of my favorite technological things are leaping closer together. Ubuntu and Android. Both are on top of their games and are quickly becoming favorites around the world. Android, well you know Android, is taking over the mobile world by storm, and rightfully so. It’s intuitive interface and outrageous custom options make using our mobile devices a treat every time we turn the screen on.
Ubuntu, the second most popular OS for computers, made by Canonical, is as easy to customize as Android is with tons of free software and a worldwide support group that puts Microsoft’s support group to SHAME has found a way to integrate an Ubuntu desktop interface into an Android device.
Once loaded onto your phone you can use the Ubuntu interface inside or alongside Android. Here is a tidbit of what Canonical had to say about their most recent innovation:
Now multi-core Android phones can be PCs too. Ubuntu for Android enables high-end Android handsets to run Ubuntu, the world’s favourite free PC desktop operating system. So users get the Android they know on the move, but when they connect their phone to a monitor, mouse and keyboard, it becomes a PC.
Simply “dock” your Ubuntu capable phone into a dock connected to your computer and BOOM! You have Ubuntu that has all of the capabilities of Android on your desktop or lappy. You can access all of your apps, send texts, picture messages, even make phone calls!!! Wow, I think I’ve died and gone to heaven.
This incredible innovation is still in testing phases getting ready to roll out to the masses and when it lands it will be HUGE. I for one cannot wait. I sit here staring at my dock, watching and waiting, waiting and watching with the occasional punch of the F5 key hoping it will get here sooner than later. But alas, good things come to those who wait.
A fellow writer here at ACS, artifintel, wrote about Android 5.0 (Jelly Bean) looking to incorporate a dual boot system with Android on one partition and a Windows 8 setup on the other partition, to hell with that, I’d totally prefer to have Ubuntu on the second partition so when I’m away from home and need my Ubuntu fix I could pull up the Precise Pangolin and enjoy me some Ubuntu goodness.
Keep your eyes, ears, mind, and some space on your phone for when this drops because when it does it will bring a whole new life to our awesome Android Ecosystem.
