Transform an Android device into a Linux machine

Final Word

The apps I've described are not your only options for running Linux on an Android device. The Complete Linux Installer [9] and Linux Installer [10] apps, for example, let you install a Linux distribution on a rooted Android device. If you own a Google Nexus 7 device, you can replace Android with Ubuntu by following the instructions on the Ubuntu wiki [11]. The described solutions have their advantages and drawbacks, but because they are all available free of charge, you can try them all and pick the one that best fits your needs.
