    Just curious, with regards to the recent announcement of Ubuntu OS for phones, how difficult would it be to port it over to the Spectrum? I've read that "it can run all device drivers written for Android", and "The OS is compatible with many Android board support packages (BSPs), which are configuration settings for the handset hardware, making it ready to run on many existing mobile chipsets that currently run Android. It will work with handsets running either x86 or Arm processors." Wouldn't that make porting it over relatively easy? I'd love having a dual-boot option.

    It's highly unlikely lg will contact Ubuntu to develop such a device, so porting could be easy.... Could be hard.
