After much fussing, I managed to get Ubuntu with the Unity desktop installed, and here I am in a FireFox browser posting on CP!

I'll write an article on this soon. You won't believe (or maybe you will) the number of websites and tries that I have gone through to get a desktop up and running. Not that it's actually necessary (or even desired) -- it was more an exercise of "it should be able to do this!"

Short story:

Get a good (and large, 8GB or >) uSD card
Put Ubuntu 12.04.2 on it
Boot and install ubuntu-desktop (takes about 4 hours)

Also managed to get a 128GB SSD (on USB) mounted. Now I'm trying to move "home" onto the SSD but encountering a few issues.

Fun stuff, goofing around with all this.

Good thing is, it's ultimately for a client's project for some custom controller stuff, so obviously won't need a desktop environment. We're still debating what to use for handling the web services (Ruby, JavaScript / node.js, etc)
