I recently got a Convertible Tablet as my “Digital Pad” with a stylus (HP Elite X2, Core M5). So far just tried using OpenSuse Tumbleweed and it was ok. I only seemed to get additional “tablet Optimizations” when I downloaded and switched to GNOME from KDE. Any suggestions of Desktop environments, tools, and/or Distro implementations that can provide an optimal convertible experience.
I worry about the dev politics with regards to that DE.
You mean the switch from GTK to EFL?
There seemed to be a foul negativity and bad energy associated with Budgie development from what I hear when I was using it many years before. Not sure if it had changed, but don’t want to get short changed support due to this issue.
I would pick Budgie over GNOME any day of the week, specifically if we are talking about their politics
