said Thierry de Coulon:
| So, for information:
| I've purchased a second hand Surface Pro - and of course installed
| Linux.
| I've installed Debian 9, with Gnome 3 and TDE.
| Touchscreen works out of the box (but is impossible to calibrate if
| rotated) Keyboard works out of the boy (inclusive backlight)
| Touchpad works out of the boy (but is not good)
| WiFi (Marvell) works once firmware has beein installed and Network
| manager's mac randomization has been turned off
| Autonomy seems not too bad (over 5 hours, that's less than Windows 10
| pretends to give).
| Suspend and Hibernate work (using systemctl)
| There are two things I would still like under linux/TDE:
| - bigger windows decoration
| - A way to make the system ignore had-touch when using the stylus. This
| works under Windows and makes anotating a document much easier.
| The stylus works great (and is actually compatible with the one I use on
| the Thinkpad X220T). Strangely this stylus works on the Thinkpad's Wacom
| *and* the surface's digitizer, but the later is not identified as Wacom
| - maybe just a different identifier that should be set in the driver
| code?
| With a core i5, 8GB RAM and a 256 SSD for the equivalent of $300 that's
| not bad.

That sounds very promising -- I'll see what I can find in a Surface Pro for 
not a huge amount of money.

Thanks very much for the update!
