I got it working with Ubuntu after tweaking the memory sizes - too small was no good and too big no good either.

I booted it without the fancy graphics option and it ran in Windows XP - but was very slow.

Amazing to think it is even possible.....

Hmm looks like someone finally release dialkeys for something other than the Q1, I'll give it a test later and let you know of my thoughts. Thanks for the link KeyboardMan, are you the developer? I think the UX's screen might be too small for the keys but we'll see.

So far the best onscreen KB for the UX for me has been the Zero Weight KB. Not perfect but gets the job done better than the built-in for most things. The only problem is that sometimes after typing a message I often find myself sliding the screen up to use some special key on the built-in (example: after typing this message I will use the built-in arrow key to scroll to submit button). Otherwise I love the ZW KB...maybe the best utility so far.
