    Interesting...maybe I can new purpose to my wife's six old Surface. Actually turn it into something useful as opposed to the paperweight that it is now.

      Maximilian Luz is the maintainer of https://github.com/linux-surface/linux-surface/

      Very exciting that this work is finally going upstream.

        Remember!

        Microsoft loves Linux! Should be all contributors with a microsoft.com email address or namespace.

          I am certain that that will happen.... . But I will do my part. I do have a hotmail address, I will use that if and when I convert my wife's old Surface to linux.

          It will then be a Windows System with Linux...my very own WSL. I think it is a Surface 2, so it will be a WSL2.

            Cool, now the only things missing for my SF4 PRO which are not mainline (AFAIR) are the the Intel touchscreen driver (it would seem Intel has no love for it) and camera support. Kudos to the people which made it possible to get the platform controller mainline!
