I have bought Microsoft Surface R tablet with cover keyboard but I don’t like the Windwos RT OS system. Is it possible to install Ubuntu or any kind of Linux on Surface tablet? Any suggestions to do that?
Microsoft is taking the Apple model this time. The hardware and software of Surface RT is locked, so you are unable to run Linux, Ubuntu or Android OS on the tablet unless cracking it. For Surface Pro, you could try a regular UEFI based boot loader or use a virtual machine software in Windwos 8.
It depends on two things:
1. Flash the device from somewhere or boot it from removable memory.
2. The distro is signed by a key the device recognizes. Fedora should work and software hackers will most likely be all over it.
