Canonical explains the status of Ubuntu on ARM Powered Laptops - - It will be good to get an alternative processor platform to power all our laptops and desktops. But to run a full consumer friendly OS on an embedded processor platform has been a challenge so far, as the ARM processors were originally intended just to power phones and other dedicated devices. Designing a simple user interface for the Linux based OS that can be embraced by the mass market instead of Microsoft Windows is also a large challenge. Jerone Young is one of the main engineers at Canonical working for the past many months in trying to get Ubuntu to work 100% smoothly on the upcoming fastest ARM Processors that will come in the thin, light and possibly very cheap ARM Powered laptops and desktops that will normally reach the mass market in the months to come. This video was filmed by Charbax of at the Freescale Technology Forum in Orlando Florida.
