Using a combination of the Google Nexus One, Android, smarts, and AndroidVNC, Max from NexusOneHacks.net took Canonical’s Ubuntu Linux OS and got it up and running for the device. He hasn’t gone into too much detail about how he was able to do it yet, but he did offer up a nice video tutorial showing how you can do the same.

Ports and hacks like these may not be practical for everyday situations, but it really shows the freedom developers and users are being given when they adopt Android (and – specifically – the Nexus One which Google almost encourages people to crack). Who’s racing for their Nexus One right now to try this out?
