Run Linux on the Nexus 7 Tablet

The ultimate ROM? I guess this really does not even qualify as a ROM when it is an entirely different operating system. Would you like to run the complete Linux operating system on your Asus made Google Android Nexus 7 tablet? Or maybe the new Samsung Nexus 10 coming out just around the corner? If you decide to go down this path you will be running the Ubuntu 13.04 version of Linux. Currently this is in the earliest stages of development with Jono Bacon heading the way. The group is looking for testers as well as programmers. If you have a Nexus 7 and would like to help, it would be appreciated. Make sure you fully understand everything you are doing before you take any action. You will not be running an emulator of linux. You will be erasing Android completely and replacing it entirely. Can you imagine the possibilities? All the linux software software at your disposal in a comfortable and very portable package. I will be following up with instructional videos and test results. Subscribe to the blog to keep up. Its in the upper right side.
