(Also posted on Ubuntu partnership subject, but here's seems to be more Linux people, original message below:)
Hi everyone, first post here
Just sign up to the community to share the need of a powerful, light, well designed device officially supporting (the most popular) Linux distros AND designed for pen & touch.
The philosophy of sharing and building things together of this (now it's "our" btw) community is exactly the same as Linux and open-source movement in general.
And as a designer, I think we need to question ourselves if we really want proprietary software and hardware (Photoshop on Windows on Surface, for me). But I can't apply my own values because there's nothing like that nowadays (talking about great pen integration). You're an incredible hope for open-source-minded people I think!
That's why maybe a partnership with Ubuntu (which I think is one of the distro with the best touch and devices-universality integration, but I can be wrong) can be a great idea. With Ubuntu team and one or a few design softwares for Linux (like Krita) we can build a first plot for the future!
Sorry for the long text folks, wish I can represent better people in my situation
