    That link results in a 403 error (forbidden).

    EDIT: Even the links to that article on that site's other pages don't work.

    In your head.
    So, what are the benefits to doing this? I'll probably do it once the Evo is rootable, but I'm curious.

    the purpose at the moment is to do it and and be amazed but the over all purpose this includes the future is so that our android phones will be able to use linux programs and even windows programs because linux has a program called wine that allows you to run windows applications in linux.

    Sorry, I don't have reliable internet at the moment (so no youtube) how is this? Looking good? Sketchy? I am *very* curious.

    It would be pretty cool to be able to write some .net programs for an ubuntu OS powered android using mono. :D
