Mobile Devices

I'm aware a droid is somewhat Linux based: however, is there a way to run any distro on a kindle fire?
Kind regards,
Matt W.

Well, not just any distro, but distros that are intended for ARM processors, probably.

There are a few videos on Youtube, but nothing like "How to put Linux on your Kindle in 3 easy steps."
