I have just bought a yoga 11 with windows rt, never heard of it before and I have bought the laptop to make it easier to use certain drag and drop software, now I realise that rt is totally utterly useless even after using the emulator, could I install any other software? such as Ubuntu or win 7 or (preferably good old xp) and would it be compatible with the touchscreen and work as should? I mean it cant be that hard? they had big touch projector boards in schools running xp 9/10 years ago?

The best you can do is upgrade it to Windows RT 8.1. That's a huge improvement in every way, but you still end up with a locked-down variant of Windows which can only install apps from the Windows Store. You cannot install any earlier version of Windows or Ubuntu.
I actually like RT 8.1. The browser is excellent and I use Office all the time, but it also gives iPad-like battery life. So there are upsides too.
