Assuming it is Android?
I have seen Ubuntu on Android tablets but I think it's just a select few tablets.
If the OS is bogging it down have you not tried rooting and flashing a custom ROM that might perform better on your tablet?
It is an Android. I am not sure what OS it is running currently. I have not tried anything with it yet because I've been trying to do some research on it... It wasn't purchased, my parents got it for free for listening to some sort of salesman's schpeel, and they said they were "too old" to use that kind of thing and didn't like it. I cannot find any brand names or anything. It uses opera to surf the web. Upon inspection I suspect that this salesman's company had special ordered some especially cheap ones for this purpose. I know they are not too old for it at all, and if I could just put some functioning software on it, they could actually get some use out of it.
Also, I am a linux newb. I have seen an Android phone rooted before but never done anything like this myself. I really expected when I took on this task that I would find the model of it online and then find a very easy tutorial on how to make it better...
