I Have put the Ubuntu Touch on my Nexus 7, but it seems VERY clunky. Maybe because it is a preview version, but there really is not a lot you can do on it. Im afraid that the N9 might not be able to run it smoothly enough right now. We will probably have to wait for the complete version.

Well, it seems like the base for Ubuntu Touch is just a fork of CyanogenMod 10.1, which means it might require similar procedures as getting NitDroid on N9(00).
I am not happy with this decision as I think it won't help FOSS in any way, just saying..

It doesn't even use XServer or Wayland, but Android's display server instead:

To me, it is a disappointment, but I guess it works for Ubuntu as it simplifies porting.

Yeah, Ubuntu Touch can go ahead and die.

I'm waiting for Sailfish Jolla.
They've taken the "proper" route as it seems, but life's full of surprises.
