I'd love to see a normal Linux distro on a tablet. Unity seems like it would work well for it.

I thought I heard some people got ubuntu running on the Asus Transformer.

Tho proper support is great news. As long as they drop unity for gnome 3.2. also i wonder if this will be based on kenrel 3.1
Unity is better than gnome3, IMO at least.

Puppy, Ubuntu and Fedora are different distributions of the same OS?

Unity and Gnome3 only suck for desktops, they're great for this kind of use.

They sure did get it running on there but it wasn't pretty or fully functional. I guess this will be the start of the trend that can get things going.

If they give the option of installing it onto phones we already have, that are now running android, I'll be all over this. Imagine their website hosting an iphone ubuntu distro, 100% working out of the box! That would be awesome!
But they'll probably just license it to the handset makers, the way wp7, winmo, and android are doing it today.

The kernel is the most important part of the OS though since that directly interfaces with the hardware. Windows 7 would not be Windows 7 if it was running on MS-DOS kernel instead of NT 6.1 kernel.

linux is the kernel

gnome, gcc, xorg, etc, etc, everything that is bundled with almost all linux distros are part of the gnu project. a project to make a fully open source unix like os, but an os is more than a kernel. When the project got under way, everything like gedit, was finished but the kernel. Linus said the if the gnu project finished the kernel, the gnu project does have a really unstable kernel, in time, he wouldn't have made the linux kernel. So, the gnu just mashed the linux kernel with the programs they made, and bam we have an os. thats why you see many distros called GNU/Linux cause GNU is everything but the kernel basically.

Wonder how this will turn out, Android vs Ubuntu
