Android on Ubuntu

May 28, 2009

Michael Frey, Canonical developer and member of the OEM team, has shown at the UDS in Spanish Barcelona that Google's Android can run on Ubuntu.

This is the first time that Android applications have been proven to work on a standard distribution. Android has been successfully ported onto the x86 architecture many times, but always the whole stack, including the kernel. On his blog, Frey explains that by building Android against the libc of the host, the OEM team from Ubuntu have now succeeded in getting the GUI component (Java) to work under Ubuntu.

The best of two worlds: Android on Ubuntu Netbook Remix.

Michael Frey presented the first prototypes at the Ubuntu Developer Summit which is taking place in Barcelona this week.

    Michael Frey, Canonical developer and member of the OEM team, has shown at the UDS in Spanish Barcelona that Google's Android can run on Ubuntu. Because you really feel that the position of this website is high quality, it's quite possible you are thinking about using Linux as your number 1 or just a replacement Operating-system while you are basically done with your old OS. Despite the fact that the majority suppose that Linux is too advanced that it is of interest only to geeks, Linux-magazine.com will likely confirm that this outstanding os is realistically for almost everyone. It is certainly fun to learn about Android on Ubuntu.

  • Ubuntu is built on the shoulders of giants

    Just remember, the rock solid base that Ubuntu has to work with: Debian Linux.

    I was using Debian long before Ubuntu and have to say that Ubuntu picked the right base distro to work from.

    Debian goes a long way to making sure that things are going to work and interact properly across the system. This unfortunately has the negative side of a very long release cycle. Ubuntu gives you bleeding edge and a consistent release cycle as well as all the very good things from Debian.
