it's definitely not debian, i think we covered that now.
i looked at ubuntu phone a while ago, read some articles, and also browsed the ubuntu forum section for Ubuntu phone/touch.
i don't remember the exact article anymore, but ubuntu phone is based on android much more than one would like.
the kernel is 100% android, for one, but also large parts of the UI are based on it afaiu.
about the command line tools:
does this actually work?
can you e.g. ssh into some other machine?
perchance, even use sshfs?

have you actually done this, with useful results, without breaking the install?
again, from my forages into ubuntu forum's touch/phone section, i was led to believe that this is is more than tricky.
and you have to understand, if even the fanbois over at UF are so critical, it really must mean something...
