I'll have to hit Distro Watch and see what's available for the ARM processor. I thought a lot of these tablets used x86 chips though?...

A few do, but many use the cheap arm processors. I have an arm 7 that I can't find anything to work with, but arm 8's are supposed to work with a few linux disto's that are ported for them. These little imports vary a great deal, even when supposedly from the same manufacturer, so depending on the hardware used that day, they may or may not work with linux. Those manufactured by major companies are more standardized and will probably work better.Registered Linux user #526930

I watched an older ep. of Hak5 today where they hacked a Nexus 7 and installed Ubuntu 13.04 on it. Seemed to be pretty easy to do and worked fine. I was just looking for a Linux Distro to put onto a tablet so I'd have the same experience as my desktop and be able to use the same software. Doesn't really matter though, I've gone a different way, ordered some SSD's for my laptops instead.
