Yoga 11 doesn't have an Intel processor. To my knowledge, only Windows 8 RT is available for the processor in your Yoga 11.

Unless you mean 11S? That has an Intel chip so there's at least a chance older Windows might work, although I've never tried it with my Yoga 13.

Full Win8, no - the full Win8 isn't built for the ARM processor in your Yoga11.

Linux, not sure but I think not - I read somewhere only the OS must be signed/approved by Microsoft to run on an RT device. But I'm not an expert on Linux so someone else will need to confirm this.

Does Linux run on ARM processor (same processor as the Surface RT and Nexus 7 gen 1)?

I have no experience with Linux for ARM - a bit of searching turns up some though, e.g. Arch Linux.
