    Few days ago I've seen Ubuntu for mobile.
    What do You think will it be possible to run it on N9?
    I already have my N9 more then one year and soon I'll have to change it for new phone and I don't want to loose Swipe...

    it may be possible, though it'd take some porting. it would likely be unofficial at that point.I would say check out your phone on xda-developers if you haven't already, but i don't see it there, that lowers the chances that you can get Ubuntu on your phone.

    There are threads about the N9, all of them about Android it seems. I don't know how popular the N9 is.

    Why do you think it is needed to switch phone? A year is not that long, is it? I had a Samsung phone last ~5 years (although I do not use my cellphone that much, so in your case it might have been <=3 years or so). Note: I assume you are still getting software updates for the phone.
