What about the Lenovo Yoga ‘2 in 1’ options? The keyboard is attached but generally Lenovo are more linux compatible? But I assume the surface pros are the closest to an iPad but with linux capability?
Probably a very noob question, but are all the drivers that need to be downloaded to make the surface pro 7 a Linux touch tablet stored on the SSD? Or in the bios/firmware? I want to swap out the SSD’s between a windows SSD and another SSD with linux and all its necessary drivers installed, I want to compartmentalize my use of each SSD depending on what tasks I am doing
I've tried to install Fedora, but I just can't understand how to make touchscreen work. I searched for a solution online, but I'm an ex-Windows user who does know nothing about coding at all. I have a Surface Pro 7; the kernel part is mind-blowing for me. Can someone in this community help me with my problem?
I have a surface pro 4 if I try Ubuntu will it work
Thank You. I just viewed EC's YT channel using Linux Mint installed on an old X86 Surface Pro 2. I am very surprised at his work but yours is AMAZING with >> M$ft Surface Pro7 + << and Github reference ( very important information)
This is a really good news! Being a person who didn't want to be as bleeding edge as Arch, for my laptop I went with Manjaro KDE although I did use Arch with i3 on my work laptop before and still am using Ubuntu for my web server. Maybe I should try Fedora sometime, but main GNOME kinda keeps me away because of its radical shift in UX decisions.
I'm very used to using menus from Global Menu (I keep them away from window, but still use them from keyboard with Plasma HUD) in KDE Plasma, so not sure if GNOME will work for my needs. How are you finding GNOME usable? Especially since you rely on Video Editing so heavily and all video editors I know of like Kdenlive, Shotcut etc., are full blown with menus?
the issue i have with linux ( which keeps me from converting ) i need one note ( not the web app, the proper one note with pen features ) and there is just nothing that is even remotely similar, and compatible with onenote ... the webapp sucks and has no pen support :/
why put linux on microsoft? to sell more microsft!!
Can I use a different keyboard? I don't have a surface one but I do have a brydge one
The biggest problem comes when you need the virtual keyboard. It's really bad on any Linux I had tried. Microsoft keyboard is waaaaay better. And not having a Whatsapp App like MacOS or Windows is a huge problem to use Linux as a main OS since Whatsapp videocalls are a must have in some countries.
And about battery life, I don't think you made some tests. It's even worst on some Linux distro that I've tried. Never get better than Windows in my experience.
How does the web browsing experience on the tablet? Edge is terrible on windows touchscreen, im thinking of installing Linux to avoid getting an ipad.
I can agree with a lot of what you said, except for the battery life claim. I love Linux, and it is my preferred OS, but I have never gotten anywhere near as good battery life out of my devices on Linux, as compared to their native operating systems of Windows or macOS. I have used multiple devices, from multiple manufacturers, and with different performance profiles... I systematically get 2 hours less on Linux than I do on Windows.
It has been my only real gripe with Linux. I am far from the only one that has had this experience. My colleagues have experienced the same, and it is also something I see a lot in the community forums. There are utilities that can make the experience better, but out of the box, do not expect better battery performance.
Hi! I loved the video! How did you managed to get Surface Pen to work? Please help me 🥺
Sorry, but people here seem a bit delusional. "Linux on Surface is great! You just need to spend a great amount of hours learning and searching, fix issues, install this and that, spend a few more hours... and everything works perfectly, except for this and this and that. Otherwise, it's so easy and I Iove it." 😬😂
i try to install fedora on my surface 3 and the wifi keep disconnecting after a few minutes, otherwise i will make fedora my main OS on surface, and yet it cant even connect to wifi in my case
Sold! trying on SB2
Awesome video! Installing Fedora as I type this! Looking forward to the power profiles so hopefully will prevent eating my battery life.
installed on Surface Pro 4, Touch screen is glitching registering random touches, otherwise fine
