The yoga 11 is at the moment not usable with linux. Main problem is getting linux installed. At the moment of writing it is not possible to disable secure boot in the EUFI setting. In WinRT the settings are not accessible (in contrast in win 8).
Attemps are ungoing to allow a bootloader to load linux in secure boot, but there's nothing available yet.
So in short, no possibility Linux on yoga 11.
Caution the yoga 11s has an intel processor with win8 (not RT), and allows for installing linux

That is not correct actually.

Right now I am writing from my new Ideapad 11s, received last week and wiped windoz by installing Linux. I have installed the Penetration Testing Distro BackBox Linux and the only thing that was not working was the wirless driver which I have solved as well thanks to this blog:

uefi is just stupid and all you have to do is to enable legacy boot in your bios instead of uefi.

Read tixel's comment !

Yoga 11s is not Yoga 11 !
The 1st has intel i3 uC and run on Win8
The 2nd has Tegra3 uC (ARM) and run Win8RT !
