    Ubuntu Desktop on Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet?

    I just found out about a new type of tablets performant enough to run for example windows 8 such as the Dell venue 8 pro. I was wondering, is it possible to install Ubuntu Desktop on such a device, would the touch function work with the hardware? did anyone manage to run Ubuntu on this tablet or do we need to wait until release of Ubuntu touch? thanks for any comments.

    thanks for the link, I recall I read this thread before I joined the Ubuntu forum.

    this type of tablet would great to run Ubuntu, probably must be faster than win8 and take less space.
