"There are some real advantages to owning a Google Nexus device — a Nexus
4 handset in this case. There is no need to 'root' it or otherwise
coerce the hardware to allow the installation of alternative software;
connecting the device to a Linux machine and running:

fastboot oem unlock

will do the trick."

I'm afraid I don't understand. Connect how? With micro USB? When I do
that with my Nexus 8 tablet, all I can do is choose between "Connect as
camera", which I suppose means MTP, and "Charge".

The only way I've ever been able to make them communicate is over the
WiFi, with a SSH server on the Linux host and AndFTP or similar app on
the tablet.

You boot the phone into "fastboot" (early stage bootloader) by holding volume down and power during boot.

Or you can enable USB debugging in settings and issue a command: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_mako

Hmm... Nexus 8 is obviously have come from some alternate reality (or perhaps from the future?) thus we can not be 100% sure it behaves like other Nexus devices. This being said with most devices you can only root/reflash/etc if you boot it in special "recovery mode" (and this is good: device which can be easily overwritten by any malicious changer will not be very practical).
