Native Ubuntu on EeePad Transformer!

My original goal was to put Ubuntu running “chrooted” on top of Android OS so you can still use your Android as a phone while running Ubuntu. Well, that was before the days of Android tablets.

Now that I’ve got hands on an EeePad Transformer with a keyboard dock, it makes more sense to just straight run a native Ubuntu on it.

It runs much faster than chrooted although there’s still some bugs and kinks to work out such as speakers not working, flash not working, and whatnot but it’s very usable.
