[On Hiatus, but worth considering] #! on a Windows tablet?

Hey, *
Asking this in testing/unstable because I'm not sure where else it should live.
There's a nifty little ASUS T100 tablet running Windows 8.1 that I've been looking at, and while I "need" another computing device like I need a hole in the head, I want one.
But I refuse to use Windows anymore. I am simply done with that level of nonsense in my life.
So, has anyone tried loading #! onto a tablet? Aside from the Atom CPU, the hardware is do different from a traditional desktop, or even laptop...
Thing is, we can only hang onto our older machines for so long before we're forced to cross this road anyway when we buy something new. What do you think?

It looks like getting Linux to run on a T100 is a bit challenging.

I think I can hold on to my older hardware a little longer.
