Completely non relevant as we speak about the linux kernel which is fully opensource. Any additional lines of codes can and will be reviewed. Your comment only makes sense for proprietary products of intel and huawei which do not allow any review or auditing. The main reason why companies like Huawei are jumping on the linux bandwagon is because it is saving them billions of dollars software development costs. instead of doing their own mayonaise, they solely add their own needed hardware support in the existing linux kernel tree. i would be happy if all hardware vendors would contribute... instead of fingerpointing intel and huawei, fingerpoint Apple refusing to add 1 line of code!

I see linux as the future and obviously so do the major shakers and movers in the world. I find that interesting.

Autorotation once in a tablet mode - still looking at how to activate it.
I would use FreeBSD on my P71 but no Cuda for FreeBSD so no P71 with FreeBSD... but running Arch Linux on it.
T61 - Arch. T440p- Arch.X220 - Arch. but all these are used when im bored and I want to try a new OS as sometimes I do distro-hopping lol.

Apart from that I've had no problems.

Nice to see someone else using Ununtu. I use hardly anything else. It's just a great well thought operating system and I've had no problems installing it on any of my ThinkPads.twillis449 wrote: ↑Thu Nov 19, 2015 3:53 amInteresting thread. I've been using unix-based operating systems since 1983 and linux since 1998 for both professional and personal use - I only use Windoz about 1% of the time - usually for administrivia related to my employer. Although I've used thinkpads in the past (mostly from the T6x line) at the moment my personal laptop is a Dell Latitude E6420 with a core i7 CPU + an SSD for storage. Originally I installed 'standard' Ubuntu 14.04 on the computer. Boot time to the login prompt was ~ 8 sec. Then about a month ago I installed Xubuntu 14.04 on a friend's Thinkpad T60. I liked the look and feel of the XFCE GUI and decided to try Xubuntu on my latitude E6420. WOW - boot time to login prompt decreased to ~ 4 sec !! So obviously Xubuntu is what its claimed to be - much more lightweight. I stick with ubuntu because its easy to install and also is more or less required for some of my work-related projects. I didn't like the Unity desktop and the Ununtu software center approach to software package management. These just seem to be an approach to dumbing things down to the Windows level. I preferred the gnome desktop and the synaptic package manager.
