Default Can Linux be installed on our S3 ?

I've been reading around on how to install it and it "seems" like it would work for our Metro pcs S3. But has anyone tried it and confirmed it worked?

installed is such a strong word, can you install it and use it instead of android? no...

instead you can use an iso and mount it, then run it along side android, cool concept except its pretty useless

no, you mount the iso and it runs kind of like a virtual machine and you open up remote desktop to it.
