    Just got the blade Pro and have Linux installed on the WSL.

    I am after turning to Linux and the remote desktop on my own machine in WSL isn't cutting it.

    I note a lot of forum threads I have seen are now a year out of date.

    I am looking at installing Mint on my machine so I can get an easy move from windows.

    Can it be done yet or are there still hardware issues with the blade, Blade Pro to be specific.

    Also if its possible, some instructions on any changes would be welcome.

    The touchpad can be slightly tricky, and hybrid graphics causes some gray hairs to most.
