    PicUntu brings light-weight Linux to RK3066 mini PCs (MK808, UG802, etc) - Liliputing (click for full article)

    "There are a handful of inexpensive TV sticks with Rockchip RK3066 dual core processors available for around $50 to $70. While they're designed to run Android apps on a TV, they can also run other operating systems. Now the first Ubuntu Linux-based OS is available for RK3066 mini computers including the MK808 and UG802.

    It's called PicUntu, and it's available for download from Google Code."

    Closer look at Ubuntu Phone OS (video) - Liliputing (click for full article)

    "Ubuntu Phone OS is a Linux-based operating system for smartphones that could show up in handsets that will hit the market in late 2013 or early 2014.

    But Ubuntu's parent company Canonical is already showing off early builds of the software running on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone - and in the coming weeks Canonical will release software that lets anyone install Ubuntu on a Galaxy Nexus to try the operating system early."
