  • is there somewhat stable os for a celeron 2 in 1?
    You can use JingOS. It has good support for touchscreen but it is not super stable yet. But for regular usage, I think it's okay. You can also Gnome based OS. The recent Gnome 40 has good touchscreen support. For Gnome 40, you can try Fedora or Ubuntu 20.10. - Source: Reddit / 9 days ago

  • I want change my distro

  • Should I make the big move? Windows - Linux
