Ubuntu Running On Galaxy Tab
If you fancy trying to run another OS on your Galaxy Tab, say like Ubuntu, then you’ll be interested to hear that it’s possible!
XDA forum member dviera88 decided to take the plunge and have a go by following the instructions for getting Ubuntu running on the Samsung Epic, originally posted by XDA member BThomas22x. Your Tab must be rooted, and you will need Busybox, Superuser, the Android SDK and knowledge on how to use it, AndroidVNC and Terminal Emulator.
