If you are like Scott and think that the cut rate price of the HP Touchpad is just too good to resist you might want to put on an OS that you know will still be around in a year or two.  Techware Labs have written a guide on how you can install Ubuntu on your touchpad in addition to WebOS so you don't have to wipe out the Touchpad's original functionality.  Make sure you back everything up however as you will be spliting the storage media into two partitions, one for WebOS and one for Ubuntu.   Happy modding.
