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.

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more.

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets. Perhaps they are dropped from a height, carelessly hardbricked, or simply stashed in a drawer in favor of a shinier upgrade.
