Something that looks pretty interesting, kinda combo nix - droid sort of.

https://wiki.debian.org/ChrootOnAndroid

Really interesting no matter what. Installed a terminal emulator on my cheapy Android phone, its funny messing with the thing. Installed busybox too but its not going to work on the thing natively w/o rooting it and atm dont want to even try. Did this before on a rooted device of course it was more fun to mess with then. Still lotsa cool and interesting parallels, maybe cross overs for gnu/nix + android on mobile. The AOSP (open source android) possibly.

Random weirdness: Folks can get mucho more open source on mobile just clearly made more difficult. Also folks tend to constantly gripe about Google but bottomline, they provide a lot of cool/useful services too. Ahhhh

I don' t use the phone, also my phone sucks only 1 GB of ram.
If I used the phone I would love to have debian with gnome :D

:shock:
Thanks for bumping the topic. That definitely wouldn't be much fun...
I'm still waiting for further progress on Maemo Leste for my nokia n900 but it seems to be so leisurely that I may look at the other options some time soon.
