Samsung has finally made real its promise of bringing a Linux desktop to its Galaxy phones. But while Linux on DeX might sound like a Linux user???s dream come true, it comes with a few caveats. You???re pretty much limited to using a now older Ubuntu 16.04 LTS distribution and you can only use it in DeX mode on the Galaxy Note 9 or the Galaxy Tab S4. For the true open source advocate, that just isn???t enough. Fortunately, thre???s now UserLAnd, a new and upcoming way to run Linux distros and apps on Android without rooting your phone. And best of all, the app itself is open source!
