So as we all know soon we will have the files to access nvflash. This for one will hopefully allow us to install any OS we want.

Here is a guide to flashing ubuntu through nvflash onto a tegra 2 device:

Now lets hope once the nvflash tools get released in the coming days we will be able to do this.

Asus would dominate the tablet market with this due to the dock that makes it into a possible real pc now. Did asus give any indication on releasing tools for nvflash?

Will dual-boot be possible, too?
Otherwise that would be nothing for me, cause for multimedia Android is much better and I have a netbook.

RayMan and bumblebee already got tools set up, and they're releasing soon.

It's been done on other Android devices so I don't see why not.
