Latest on Linux on tablets with (please Lord) Trinity?

Greets, folks . . .

I once loved my iPad, but Apple has made me hate and despise it, with 
constant unwanted terrible updates that remove functionality and have 
reduced battery life from <12 hours to >3 hours. (IoS 11 sucks so badly 
that it pulls the branches off nearby trees.) I have had it with the iPad. 
But I have need of a tablet.

It's been awhile since I heard anything involving Linux being put on a 
tablet; for a time I had a version of Linux running on an H-P Touchpad, 
which has long since died. The X support was semi-decent -- I had either or Libre Office running (very slowly) on it.

That was probably six years ago. I kind of hope that some sort of Linux/X 
development has taken place, but haven't been able to learn much. Anybody 
know if there has been?

And the important question: would it be possible to put TDE on it and if I 
did, would it work?
