Ubuntu for Android

An interesting new development effort by Canonical has Ubuntu running in parallel with Android on a multi-core phone. When you dock, you get Ubuntu's desktop on a monitor, while the phone still looks and acts like Android.

Very cool stuff! Not really headless related, per se, but having Ubuntu fully run on the Android kernel and have glibc and the Ubuntu UI in all it's glory sitting on a phone definitely proves a point that this convergence of technology is where the future is headed.
