Prompt [Q] tablet w/ broken screen > mini server?

Hiya, so I was just given a Logicom E731 (grappy cheapass tablet) because they cracked the overlay glass that detects fingers / input. The LCD is bright and intact and android boots fine but I'm not going to buy the replacement part for ~$20 + shipping when the device is bought for 50€. Can one easily gain control via the USB 2.0 micro B port and install debian/ubuntu/whatever to turn this into a usable device? carputer/server... Does it have brewtoof?
I'm sure you're jealous of my photography skillz :P http://i.imgur.com/HBCKJaT.jpg
