If you get root on it, you can use it like any *nix machine.  Getting root is the hard part.  I will not assist in this, because it is now illegal to root tablets in the US that were not already pwned before Jan 1, 2013.  For non US residents, there are instructions to be Googled for.  A popular package to install on tablets is Clockwork Mod, or CM.

There are ways to get Ubuntu on some tablets, like the Nexus 7.  A Debian port would not surprise me. 

I installed Debian on a Windows machine recently using goodbye-Microsoft.  It is out-of-date, but it works.  It will allow you to partition the HD and dual-boot Debian and Windows.  Win 8 even works, but you have to run goodbye-Microsoft in Win 7 compatibility mode.
