In this blog post I describe how to setup Ubuntu Linux and Oracle Java on my newly acquired Google Nexus7 device. This shall be the foundation to checkout the things you can do with JavaFX on a Tablet computer.

My environment is a Macbook Pro (MBP) running on OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion). The Nexus 7 (in my case the 16gb version) is attached to the MBP via its USB cable.
