Hi everyone
I would like to have at the moment pretty much any distribution of Linux installed on my surface book1.
unfortunately none of the distros that i know works...
I dont mind if:
  • detaching screen would fail i dont need that.
  • touch screen -also not needed.
What I mainly need is
-wifi that actually will work after restart or update
-keyboard that works after restart or update

as I am experiencing issues with touch screen/ detaching screen/ keyboard not working/
I have tried
-ubuntu -no wifi; touch screen
yes there is special update for surfaces for Ubuntu but this only works until general weekly update.
-mint- no wifi after some time. needs restarting to get wifi back.
-fedora -laptop ran extremelly slow
-suse -keyboard stopped working after 1 day after system update. wifi stopped working.

Is there anyone here who has this laptop and could help me make it work.
I have made everything working with some linux forums but this only works until next system update.
I could not find any permanent/ reliable solution.

I have tried
https://github.com/jakeday/linux-surface
this is good until system updates.

Thank you
