Ubuntu Backtrack 5 on Xperia X10
Amazing developments are something we’re not new to here on XDA, with our amazing community of outstanding developers and friends. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t surprises around every corner.
Today’s surprise comes from XDA member anantshri, who has successfully managed to get Backtrack 5 to run on an Xperia X10. Backtrack, based on Ubuntu Lucid LTS, is a Linux distribution, which offers the user a range of security-related tools.

Thanks for the tip, GlossGhost!
