"When you think of Canonical's Ubuntu Linux, what do
you think of? Well, you probably think of a smooth, easy to use
desktop Linux. You also wouldn't be surprised to know that it came
designed to work and play well with netbooks. I bet you would be
surprised to know though that part of it, Ubuntu One, the personal
cloud service for Ubuntu users, will soon work with Android,

10.10, which will be available for download on Sunday, October 10.
I've already reviewed Ubuntu 10.10 and I like it a lot. Give it a
