thief:

what would be the good part about the dual boot on a tablet?   Sounds like U does not have a lot going for it on a touchscreen....
(honestly not trolling! just do not understand this one)

DD:

more a toy to be able to do it for me then anything to play with both

thief:

have not played with ubuntu at all...so...not certain what the advantages might be......

Haven't looked at it yet but many android phones and tablets can be hooked to a monitor, and via bluetooth or ADB on the micro usb port they all can be setup with a keyboard, so your android phone can become the processing unit for what is basically a desktop computer. Our Razr's have something called Webtop built in and a dock that connects to a monitor, keyboard and mouse, setting it in the dock starts webtop which is a somewhat poor desktop replacement utility.

Just released there is also an open source Linux beta of a phone OS with touch support. Getting the dual boot option will be great if you can install your own distro of linux, Android is just Googles Distro of Linux basically after all. The next generation of phones are looking to have quad & 8 core processors, 32 core graphics and possibly enough Ram and Flash to make them a pretty viable central processing unit that you can grab off the home dock and stuff in a pocket.
