ubermix is Linux based, but is it open source? Any example of porting ubermix into Raspberry Pi or Beaglebone?

Ubermix is based on ubuntu. Currently, there is no port of ubuntu to ARM devices, so it's not possible to use it.

OK, Ubuntu has been released for the Raspberry Pi 2

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/RaspberryPi

What are the chances of getting Ubermix for the Raspberry Pi 2?

Ubermix is a x68 based ubuntu distribution. If there is a large base of users requesting it, maybe Jim will port it.
But using a system like ubermix is not against the raspberry pi "philosophy" ? It's a computer to build, test, reconfigure, and to analiyze multiple hardware -  software configurations.
Also, RP 1 is very hardware limited. Ubermix 2 or 1.5 will be too slow. I read some reports on RP2 being just good for normal use, but i don't know.
