    Disliked. Other people have asked you to change your deceptive title. Please do so because people searching for your current title are wanting Ubuntu to run as the host OS directly on the hardware, not as a guest on another OS.

    If you have a constant internet connection, just connect to your home PC from were ever you are, Work, School etc. Or you can even make a virtual machine just for use together with your tablet if you wanted to. then you get desktop kind of performance, with fairly low input lag. I use Teamviewer, works great.

    Hi. I have a Lenovo s5000-h tablet and I need to install ubuntu on it. The ram is 1GB, android is 4.4.2 and the kernel is 3.4.67. I don't know if installing ubutu on my device will be OK. Do you think it'll work?

    Do you really know what the hell you are doing?!  Install some stuff, connect this thingy?  Seriously!  Ubuntu already has a version you can install on top of Android, read up on their forums… (BTW way to go bricking the tablet, and anyone who uses Ubuntu knows that you always type sudo apt-get update..  You're missing the sudo, thus this is not a real version of Ubuntu…)     Serious FAIL!

    the ubuntu itself is fast, but not the vnc, i would recommend realvnc and compare it with that, see the difference? thats what i thought first when i installed ubuntu.

    I have got a HP Slate 21 running a very lazy android that has a lot of issues and does nothing I ask it to. I would like to replace the whole OS with a Ubuntu distribution, keeping all the touchscreen options and the keyboard functions. Would you know how to do it on this particular machine (Tegra4, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, 21 inch HD touchscreen). THX
