    Buddy ,
    where you want to install ubuntu ?
    If U want to install it on MMX a75,how it will be possible?
    The size of ubuntu is around 700mb. from where u will get that space?

    Yeah ,rather U can think of puppylinux to install it on MMx a75.This is the smallest linux Os of size below 100mb

    Ok brothers,

    But will the poor ram of MMX be able to run that smoothly?
    Also if we can install ubuntu on MMXa75 then puppylinux can also be installed
    on our phone.This may give the best performance being the smallest linux OS.

    Does puppy linux has all the features what linux has and can be used instead of linux???

    Puppy linux is one of the top linux distribution just like ubuntu ,fedora,mint etc specially designed for
    old pc which have low ram and outdated weak processors.It has almost every thing that a linux dist has.The latest puppylinux is of 129mb .It does not posses graphics like ubuntu.

    If any one want to test it use YUMI linux usb installer .It creates a bootable pen drive for any linux dist.

    I think there is no use of Ubuntu or puppy Linux for normal users in our a75

    Buddy ,as Android is also a version of linux OS designed for mobiles.What is the need of an OS which is not particularly for mobiles .one may face problems such
    as there no inbuild option for call-making in any linux dist.also, you may not find same no of free apps as in android market.
