does anyone know if it is possible to flash ubuntu or any other linux distribution on an ipad? I am pretty annoyed by IOS and thought it a nice feature to switch totally to the linux OS. If one has an idea, please let me know.

Thanks in advance!

    Apple iOS bootloader is locked, and even if it's jailbroken, Ubuntu doesn't work on Apple devices. This isn't really on topic, though.

This is impossible, because there is no Ubuntu ISO that is supported with Apple Mobile devices. If you really want to have a Ubuntu on-the-go device try Ubuntu Touch: Learn more here. Remember that Ubuntu Touch is not supported with all devices, so look at the compatability list first. (ANDROID DEVICES ONLY)
