Microsoft (Natasha Brack) on Microsoft Surface compatibility with Linux:
Thanks for your interest in Surface Book. As Surface Book and all Surface products are designed, tested and optimised for Windows 10, our review units come with Windows 10 installed, therefore this is not a request we can fulfil.
Lenovo (Amy Brinker) on Lenovo Yoga systems compatiblity with Linux:
