Ubuntu running on Samsung Nexus S

Ubuntu is the ubiquitous flavor of GNU/Linux that seems to wind up an every electronic device that features a display. And the same cat that brought Ubuntu to the HD2 and MeeGo to the Nexus S has combined software and methodology from both hacks to get Ubuntu up and running on the Nexus S. As always–and it should be obvious–this is a pursue-at-your-own-peril class of hack, and is very capable of turning that hot new phone into a cold, unused slab in a matter of seconds. Those of you who are entertaining a little snow day tinkering should know that the touch screen is not yet working–a minor problem that should be resolved shortly.
