  • I just love Ubuntu.. It's a really nice OS.. And now it can also be run on mobile phones such as the HTC Pro.. Really nice.. :)

  • Firstly it's pronounced; oo-boon-too
    Secondly, that is a very hacked up version of Ubuntu because Abi-Word is not Ubuntu's default word processor and i have never seen that calendar bug before.
    Although it's nice to know that this can be done, I think Ubuntu Netbook Edition would be a better OS to try out since it is made for smaller screens, maybe not smart-phone small but it would certainly be an improvement.
