Anyone installed Linux on a tablet? I understand it's not hard to do.
If so, which ones?
Maybe you just want to root an android tablet to give you direct access to the linux OS.
Does that mean any tablet that runs Android could be changed to a Linux tables simply by over writing the OS?
I was under the impression that the Linux OS that we typically see on PC's for example is based on a certain architecture being present.....such as probably doesn't exist on tables?
But then, I really don't know
Android is a customized version of linux. If you root it you can get full access to the OS.
The tablets are usually ARM cpus.
This is basically a tablet-shaped x86 laptop, unlike most other tablets, and as a result, it's very simple to install Linux on it.
Dell does a load of 10" or so tablets that have Windows on them. My other half has one with a i3/4GB/120GB SSD in it. Great thing is the battery and SSD are upgradeable too.
How easy is it to replace Windows on a tablet with Linux like Ubuntu ?
Should be easy if there is a bios option to disable secure boot.
