So I've been playing around with the Linux roms in the Multrom thread, and it's fun for an evening but hardly useful. I'd really like to have a functional, up to date Linux system on my tablet because I like to use a bluetooth keyboard and mouse and things just don't act like a desktop system on Android with a mouse (understandably!)

Does anyone know if there is anything out there, even if it doesn't work in Multirom, that I can install? I'm not interested in Ubuntu touch, it's not usable on this tablet and I want a traditional GNU/Linux/Freedesktop.org stack.

This may not be quite what you want, but have you looked at LilDebi? It installs Debian in a chroot and manages its start-up and shutdown for you. Can't speak to mouse usage, but I use GNU Emacs and ratpoison in it (via Xvnc) with or without a bluetooth keyboard, and everything seems fine. I'm running Debian unstable.
