You know those tablet computers- all Microsoft unless one has shedloads of money for the Apple i pads- can Linux be installed on tablets?
Well, Android tablets are already running Linux (kind of) :o
Windows Surface tablets -
Surface Pro - yes but wireless doesn’t work
Surface RT - NO, they are locked and AFAIK nobody has done it yet
Android tablets - far too many to say, you’d have to Google a particular make/model.
Apple iMsad - iDontcare :
or you could just wait for the Ubuntu tablet:
or try bunging it on a Nexus7 yourself … but don’t blame me if you brick it:

It’s in it’s early days. I am watching carefully and have two tablets ready…not just yet though for the same caution that Mark said, I don’t want to brick my tablets.
I am going to give it more time as it is still in it’s infancy.

Mark please delete any links you don’t want.
Why would I want to delete any links ? … they’re Linux related, in response to a question, and non-spam
Thanks for the replies guys and apologies for the tardy reply- been working full time recently and been mad busy. Yes, I don’t really need a tablet for now and will wait for a Linux one! I have inherited my late brother’s laptop ( it’s in my mother’s at the mo) and so will have that was well as my netbook. Of course it is Microsoft but I will see if my Linux group will Linux it for me cos don’t want to be using Microsoft again, grateful tho I am for a spare laptop. I have also inherited his Kindle- have yet to try that out.
