I imagine Complete Linux Installer would work. It runs through VNC, but other than that it should be fine. Just depends on what you wish to do with it

I imagine it would be really annoying to use on a tablet this small (compared to a 10" that is).

It's annoying on a 10inch tablet too.

Very true, hence the reason why I never used it on my TF101. I'm just saying it would be even worse Android is meant for small screens, "normal" Linux distros are meant for normal laptop screens and desktops, also the biggest difference that separates the two are the interfacing options: Android is meant to use a touch interface, whereas Ubuntu and "normal" Linux distros are mean for a mouse and keyboard. I used to use Ubuntu on my Asus eeePC 1005HA before I got my TF101 and it was still a pain in the ass.

Yea, both devices would run Ubuntu fine, but you would need a mouse/keyboard for any sort of functionality.

I can't seem to install ubuntu on my Nexus 7, I'm using the app from the market. When I try to install it just says root access required to run this script. I have rooted my nexus with Super User installed and working.

Has anyone tried actually compiling a ubuntu compatible kernel?

I see there are some mentions of nexus7 kernel source.. perhaps ubuntu or mer/PA could be run natively
