[Phoronix]Ubuntu Linux On Samsung Galaxy Devices Finally Reaches Beta (Samsung DeX)

UBUNTU --
In October of 2017 Samsung announced convergence and traditional Linux distributions for Samsung Galaxy smartphones as the "Samsung DeX." Since then we hadn't heard anything more about this initiative while this week they appear to be ready with a beta.

Just in time to head off new smart phone challenger, Purism. Of course I notice Samsung isn't going to try to copy Purism's hardware kill switches, and how much you wanna bet this Ubuntu spin will spy on the user on par with Windows:SpyOnME?

I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.
