    It means nobody here has considered doing it yet. You may be the first.

    If somebody has tried it and it failed, odds are good they wouldn't report it.

    So if you do try it, let us know what happens.

    Good luck and learn by doing.

    Did you end up trying? If so, what was the result? I've tried a live boot Ubuntu via my microsd, and that worked perfectly with surprisingly full functionality. I'm still trying to find more distros that I can use without installing it on my hard drive.
