It looks like the Hasty Hoppogriff runs on ARMv5EL (I don't know what EL
means) while the Freerunner is ARM4 (I'm pretty sure). The distributions
page (http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Distributions) indicates that Debian can
run on the Freerunner, so Ubuntu on the Freerunner should be possible,
though I think it's non-trivial to do. It would be nice if in the coming
years we see Openmoko hardware platforms that can run Ubuntu and other
distros right out of the box.
