Ubuntu for Android Questions and Download help

Hi so I am currently running ubuntu on my PC and like it so much I want it on my new phone it is a G'zone Commander (1.5ghz processor 1gb of ram) how would I go about getting linux on the phone ? Where can I get a version to use on my phone it isn't the same version people use for their desktops is it ? Also how do I go about installing ubuntu on my phone I have heard that there are different ways to install it if my phone is rooted or unrooted (whatever that means)I don't have to partion the hard drive like a true dual boot do I ? So many questions on the actual process of the installation thanks to anyone who can help !

I dont think is ready to be use it as everyday OS in your phone just yet, as is being developed and there are no very many apps for it. but hopefully will be soon. So basically what is suggested is to installed if you have a second hand phone that you dont use as your main phone, so you can get familiar with it and reports some bugs you might find

Here is the link with more details

Good luck to you.

You need to start reading stuff Jack.

Briefly, Android users don't have root, so you need to 'root your phone' = a risky process to get root. Ubuntu does not have several things needed to run your phone. Try google and read for a while.
