Does tablets work on fedora?

Hi, i was wondering, if anyone has a idea. If fedora works on some tablets? if so which one would you recommend? I use gnome still want to use android. Just on a virtual machine with fedora.

Re: Does tablets work on fedora?

well there's a couple of threads in this forum about running fedora on surface hardware. use the custom search box and the terms surface, tablet above to find them all. here's one about an attempt to get fedora running on surface pro 4

as you will see, support isn't brilliant but they can run fedora with some minor effort to get it working.

also, check out this article from phoronix about chromebooks now supporting Wayland
