    Well done to the Ubports crew and community! Moving to 16.04 is a great achievement.

    I would recommend anyone interested in the future of Linux on phones to get involved. It's a very welcoming, and well run community and there's a role for everyone be it porting, developing apps or the system software, bug testing, writing documentation etc.

    Here's to the great work ahead!

      Would dream of some significant monetary help being poured into andbox to help the "but my missing app" problem that full blown GNU/Linux phone suites have.
      AndBox would really be helpful for UBPort, Jolla Sailfish (currently stuck to compatible with older 4.4 Kikat through myriad's alien-dalvik), etc.

        Just tried this on my Nexus 4 (mako) device. It's a cool project, but far from useable as a main device (downloaded the webbrowser next as suggested but even that was a dissapointing experience).

        I really do hope they succeed in the long run though as I'd love to run ubuntu on my main phone.
