    now that Apple showed that it's viable, and now that Linaro integrated the QCOM cancer upstream, yes. I will probably be getting the new snapdragon thinkpad.

      they didn't show a damn thing that wasn't already done for years prior by others.

      that step by step guide is already cancer

      indeed anon.

      if you can't follow simple steps, you don't deserve to use linux

      i've used linux for decades and this guide is making me do Black person work. they could have simply created their own configured distro without any user interaction but somehow this is far too difficult for them.

    I don't think you'll be able to boot linux on any of these laptops. I'll be happy to be proven wrong but I'll still consider ARM to be intrinsically risky unless every single one of them can.

        Okay? Doesn't mean anything if the bootloader is locked, there's no UEFI, and none of the drivers for the specific devices on the specific motherboards are available for Linux. They are on the reference device, but what about the others?

    It will always fail as long as Microsoft's x86-to-arm translator sucks ass.

      How is no one talking about this? The reason Apple can get away with switching to ARM is because they actually know how to make a competent translator. I see nothing even remotely as good in the Qualcomm or Microsoft departments

        That's because Microsoft gutted portability in the 90s to help Intel kill the DEC Alpha, now they're facing the consequences of that decision. If ARM really takes off this time Microsoft is fricked

    What do you need the added horsepower of modern phones for?
    Moder phones are multiple times faster than my old SD845 device, but the phone doesn't stutter a bit in everyday tasks. Every phone up until that point was laggy 2-3 years after release, even with custom rom and some tinkering to improve performance.

    Wake me up when it is as easy to install any generic ARM OS from a USB stick with the biggest effort on my part is spamming F11 or F12 at boot.
