Apparently @Purism dropped the plan to create a pen tablet convertible - at least it disappeared from their website. Meanwhile BYOD classrooms are flooded with iPad Pros and Surface Tables without any viable open alternative in sight.

@beni @Purism I did have Linux running on a Surface Pro 2 years ago. It's be neat to get KDE Plasma running on one.

But yea I get what you mean. I hate how in the mobile and table world, we don't have more than two options any more.

@djsumdog @Purism I also run on my Lenovo convertible pen tables. However, generally people don't install operating systems. As long as there isn't a Linux pen tablet you can buy which works well, most people will keep using whatever came with their machine.

@fence @Purism I have one of those (not running Libreboot, though). It's not about me, it's about alternatives for the general public.

@beni @Purism the general public simply does not care at all lol

also same... I should libreboot my x200 but I am currently too lazy tbh
Also available with Slackware 14.2 as an OS option on request.

@beni @Purism pine to release pinepad according to Linux Lads podcast.

@neb @Purism I couldn't find anything on their website about this. I fear it won't be powerful enough to compete with iPads and Surfaces.
