    I may be in the wrong place so mods feel free to move the post
    I run Ubuntu 12.04 all three of my computers. The one I take away to work has XP running in a Virtual Machine so I can use my Z10 with 1gig data plan tethered via DM. The computer only has 1gig ram non upgradeable, based on if the netbook got lost and stolen I could put up with it. I got it for free anyway.
    Even with the XP trimmed down as much as possible it still barely gets by with DM running. Just wondered if anyone has ever got Ubuntu or any Linux flavour to use the phone as a modem without having to run DM in the VM?

    Only thing I came across was Barry some years ago which was mainly for syncing legacy devices. They don't seem to be doing much with BB10 OS though.

    I've used my Z10 with LinuxMint by setting up a hotspot, but that's not a viable option for everyone since the hotspot isn't always free.

    Could you explain? I get the hot spot bit I think. You mean use the phone a bit like a router? When you say free do you mean not costing money or not available?

    For me the Hot Spot option doesn't cost extra on my wireless plan. So I use it to connect my laptop to the internet.

    USB tethering works just fine...under storage options set your USB type to Mac, then under tethering select USB and enable it. Haven't tried bluetooth but i'm guessing it works too!
