The only reason No on the RT is that you can't disable Secure Boot and you would have to find an ARM compiled version of Ubuntu.

The first reason more than anything else will keep you from doing much of anything.

Well... to give you SOME hope: http://www.engadget.com/2013/02/11/l...n-secure-boot/

Looks like it may actually come to fruition at some point in the (near?) future.

This is great news considering Ubuntu is already being compiled for ARM devices. e.g. Their new mobile operating system.
Once it drops, it should only be a matter of time before someone cooks it up for the RT...

Well, at least there is SOME light at the end of the tunnel.

Just because a secure boot-compatible segnature is present doesn't mean it will work; there's no way to add your own signing keys to the Surface RT's SB certificate store, so unless your Linux installer is either signed by MS or by another authority that is trusted out of the box, it still won't work.

Also, there's a big difference between recompiling a user-mode application for ARM and recompiling an entire OS. You need a compatible board support package for your processor and hardware. It's possible (and there are already Linux images that run on the Tegra3) but it's not trivial.

Way to ruin my dream :/
