Advice requested on what distros are best to run on an Intel Atom-powered tablet.


May the moderators forgive me if this thread was incorrectly placed. I have not run true Linux since about 2013-14. I remember upgrading from Fedora 13-14. Android has proven to be a very buggy affair on all the tablets or phones, many of the Samsung Galaxy family, in that phones would crash, require hard resets, and frankly, I've never tried to run Linux on a tablet. Originally Puppy seemed promising but does it work with a touchscreen? Can anyone advise what distros best run on a tablet running the above that are also user-friendly?

I know that people have gotten Slackware and others working on a tablet, but if you don't have much experience, I know it's pretty tricky, so are you sure you want to do this?

Yes. I'm leaning toward Ubuntu. One imagines there is a great opportunity to brick the device, no?

Found this on a search. http://www.bytetips.com/touchscreen-support-ubuntu/
Is it valid for a tablet running Windows 10?
