Is it possible to load Ubuntu for a full computer onto a tablet (not a tablet PC) so that I could use open office or other software that I could use in Ubuntu on a full computer on a tablet?

As far as I'm informed, yes. They will function closely the same.

I can't imagine, not being able to use Open Office. This I will almost guarantee.

Ubuntu has a very good touch-optimized interface (exception of menus: grrrr), so I don't see why not. You will probably need to enable the onscreen keyboard called Onboard, though.

Only issue I see is if it's running Windows RT, meaning that it's ARM based, which means virtually no Ubuntu support because of Secure Boot.

You can also use Ubuntu GNOME, it's more touchscreenfriendly – Jop V. Jun 12 '13 at 19:54
@com.BOY Indeed, but I found that it eats a few more resources than Unity. – Yet Another User Jun 12 '13 at 19:55

@dschinn1001 You upvote the question yourself, then – Yet Another User Jun 12 '13 at 19:59
@YetAnotherUser Oh, really? In general people say Unity eats more resources – Jop V. Jun 13 '13 at 5:43
