    None of these are convergent, or a "full" linux distro. Meego came close, but Ubuntu is going for something much different than a standard "only does phone" mobile OS.

      what do you mean by a "full" distro? that only really makes sense if you're going to attach a larger screen and keyboard.

      with a fairly bloated KDE desktop install being 8G+ you're going to need a significant amount of storage just for that. Add in a full complement of development tools, kernel source build, QT build environment, you're getting into 64GB territory - in a phone!

        Then, having got your unique-user-counting right, you've biased your results in favour of groups who bother to interact with surveying systems. That would probably be good for us Linuxites.

          I am disgusted that I had to google this for you. Check 1/3 way down the page. If you need more info, google it. I'm not going to find it for you again.
