Hi Amardeep, they are a few threads regarding Surface like this one:



And the question isn‘t strange at all! #igel-hardware would fit a bit better but let‘s stay here.

@member had some Surface experience if I remember right.

I converted my Surface 4 Pro. There’s a video on YouTube about installing Ubuntu on it. Out of box the touch isn’t working but the video shows how to get it working.

This may help for further reference on this subject:
