Re: I wonder how well this would run Linux?

I have a two month old Pro 3. I put the latest version of Fedora (22?) on, installation went well.

Keyboard and touch pad worked, touch worked but pen did not.

ALSO, and this is a biggy for me, It didn't toggle between Tablet and Desktop mode on removing/installing keyboard.

And, although I hate to say it, I found Windows 10 to be a much more polished overall experience than Fedora; I guess that's what keeps drawing me back to Windows. Just got to fix the privacy issues now.
