No it isn't and you know it. It requires a great deal of farting around with no guarantee of success or of all the hardware working and, unless things have changed recently there's no dual boot facility so you basically have a less functional device that may or may not run faster. That is of course assuming that CM supports your tablet or phone at all.

On my netbook I have Android, Windows and Linux and they all work fine. I didn't have to connect my netbook to another computer, flash a custom ROM to get root and then flash a less functional OS over the one that works fine.

I'm sick of the post-PC delusionists around here. I own a tablet, a laptop and a smart phone because they fulfil two different requirements. That is the reality, not your one device fits all idea.
