    Hey guys. I heard some time ago that the Ubuntu Phone is out, well you can install it to some phones. I was wondering about doing this myself, how hard is the install process? Is it easy for a noob like myself to install on any android phone? On the Ubuntu site, it says that it's for developers and industry partners. Would I be able to install it on my phone and play around with it? Or is it advisable to just wait until an actual phone is released or a download is made that makes it easier for everyone else to use?

    I had a Galaxy Nexus GSM a couple months ago, and I installed Ubuntu. The flashing process itself was simple enough. You need to install Ubuntu on your PC (if you don't have a Linux machine), but that's easy enough as well. However, Ubuntu on the Nexus didn't work well at all. It was very slow, hung a lot, and not much of anything worked.

    Yeah I did some further reading and I figured I'd hold off until everything was squared away. I am not risking any of my phones right now, so I'll wait until they make it available, pre-installed on phones that I can just buy. I'm not sure why they haven't done this yet though, I'd buy an Ubuntu phone if they ever decide to make one.

    Probably because the install program is not compatible with the popular windows OS
