Submission + - Ubuntu Touch container flip announced (

hypnosec writes: Ubuntu Touch development team has made available pre-release test images of the mobile operating system wherein the Ubuntu system launches directly instead of firing up after Android has booted. Up until now Ubuntu resided in a separate area and the OS was fired up on top of Android using ‘change root (chroot).’ This led many to claim that Ubuntu Touch was just another Android shell. The scenario has changed now and new images boot Ubuntu directly following which Android is initialized inside an LXC Container.
