Linux on ARMThe following tutorial will teach all users of the Ubuntu Linux operating system how to install their beloved distribution on the popular Nexus 7 tablet from Google and ASUS.

Ubuntu for Nexus 7 was officially announced by no other than Mark Shuttleworth, the creator of the Ubuntu operating system, back in October 2012, but Ubuntu for Nexus 7 will see an official release this year, in April, accompanying the highly anticipated Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) operating system.

With today's tutorial, we will try to teach Nexus 7 owners how to install the Ubuntu operating system on their tablet.

To begin, you will need to have a healthy and running Ubuntu OS installation, the Android SDK, a standard micro USB cable (the one that came with the Nexus 7 tablet), and, of course, a Nexus 7 tablet (8GB, 16GB or 32GB).
