    If I had a tablet or smartphone with enough free storage to install a desktop OS, I would install a desktop operating system like Ubuntu Linux, so I can play games like Quake 3, Doom, Duke Nukem, and Minecraft Desktop version with a keyboard and mouse or gamepad controller. There are a lot of desktop games which are still not available for mobile operating systems like Android, and some types of games like shooters are better with a gamepad controller, or keyboard and mouse. The mobile versions of desktop games sometimes are not as fun as the desktop version, so playing the game with a keyboard and mouse or gamepad controller on a smartphone/tablet can be more enjoyable.

    Not really, I much rather buy a cheap PC and do this.

    I think getting a cheap PC would be a better option for most people, but it is less portable. It is not as cool as dual-booting Android and Ubuntu Linux on the same tablet.
