Yesterday, Samsung announced a new projectLinux on DeX. Its description is that Linux on DeX allows you to enjoy the Linux environment anytime and anywhere.


Simply put, the Samsung mobile phone can start the Linux container and then connect to the monitor, which will become the Ubuntu desktop environment, so as to achieve the PC development experience on the mobile phone. However, Note9 and Tab S4 are currently only supported.


You can turn your phone into a PC per second by connecting to the monitor with a single line

However, Linux on DeX currently supports only one custom Ubuntu image (version 16.04 LTS provided by Canonical), which runs only on designated Samsung devices (Note9 and Tab S4). In addition, the hardware requirements of the device are relatively high, requiring at least 8GB storage space and 4GB RAM, and additional storage space if other software packages or applications need to be installed.


Obviously, Linux on DeX is a project for developers and professional users, so what can we do with it?

  • Download the source code from the Git repository and maintain the code library.

  • Using server CLI to manage and monitor servers

  • Use your favorite IDE to create a C / Java project
