HTC Desire HD booting Ubuntu Natively

It seems that the HTC Desire HD is following the steps of it´s predecessor, the HTC Leo because XDA member bergfex brings us Ubuntu running natively on your DHD. For now, the project is at a point where the following capabilities have been implemented: touchscreen -works as touch pad-, two finger scrolling, WIFI, dragging windows, ADB, incoming calls, and SMS. The latest update still has problems with sound, keys, USB host, and Firefox. Be sure to understand all instructions before proceeding in order to avoid unwanted results, and please leave your feedback.
