Ubuntu is alright as a desktop os, but as a phone? erm, no. The idea is you plug it into a monitor. Its not a phone os.
The question should be. Would you find having a full desktop os available on your phone that you could plug into a monitor/keyboard/mouse be helpful? The answer? Probably not :D

I've read a couple of posts regarding connecting to a monitor like it's the newest, most fascinating thing out there. Well, I hate to break the news but, it's nothing new. Celio, the fine folks who brought us the RedFly Companion back in the Windows Mobile days, have had the "ScreenSlider" app and the Celio Mobile Dock available for Android devices for quite some time. As for Ubuntu, I would definitely try it since it is gesture-based as my late, lamented webOS, which was Linux-based also.

I may flash this to my Galaxy Nexus, which is currently running a flashed ROM. The Ubuntu OS has some great ideas, and I'd really like to get a feel for how it works in daily use.
I will not be switching to it however. I was with Windows Phone from the start and I love the platform. Starting over with a new OS on my daily driver would be silly.

Blah keyboards are overrated!
And no, I don't even like the desktop OS.Try out my first Windows 8 app, ModernCalc! It's free and I would love to hear your feedback!
