If you would like to try some of the Linux (Unix) variants without destroying your tablet, please do it the smart and easy way by installing Linux into a bootable USB drive and not on your primary internal drive. Here's how.

Universal USB Installer aka UUI is a Live Linux USB Creator that allows you to choose from a selection of Linux Distributions to put on your USB Flash Drive. The Universal USB Installer is easy to use. Simply choose a Live Linux Distribution, the ISO file, your Flash Drive and, Click Install. Upon completion, you should have a ready to run bootable USB Flash Drive with your select operating system installed.

There's no guarantee that any of the Linux variants have all the drivers needed to work with your hardware.  Some things, like touch screen etc. may not work. If you try it this way, you haven't lost anything or messed up your device and you can blow  away Linux after you have some fun and get tired of it.
