HTC Touch Pro2 Runs Ubuntu Linux

This is probably another development that Microsoft won’t be too happy about, but it’s not like they can stop you from tinkering with your phone, right? Now, after the HTC Touch HD has been hacked to run Android, we’ve got wind of a HTC Touch Pro2 running Ubuntu Linux8.04. Of course, the OS is really meant for laptops and desktops, but again, nobody can stop you from having some fun, right? You’re free to give it a try by loading the files onto the memory card, and running haret.exe, though we’d strongly suggest you backup your files and settings before giving this a test drive. In case you need more information on how cool this is, check out the video after the jump.
