Nexus 7 and Linux(What distros can run on it?)

I just got a Nexus 7 for work(basic office application nonsense) and I have it rooted. I would like to put a full Linux distro on it in place or Android(no chroot). I know Ubuntu will work, but I'm really not a fan of Ubuntu. Can any other distros be installed on it?

Besides Ubuntu; the only other distro Google provided was Fedora. Fedora can be installed on an android tablet or an iPad-

This member in this forum installed Fedora on his Droid.
He doesn't make it clear so you might be able to e-mail the member-

That's all I was able to find.

Hope this helps.
