John Heidemann / Other Stuff / Free Unix / Free Unix on Lenovo X1 Yoga, Generation 4

I recently purchased a Lenovo X1 Yoga, Generation 4 to run Fedora Linux (F31). This is my fourth Yoga, so they must be on to something.



Overall: Disappointing to have sound break (I looked–the last time Linux sound didn’t work out of the box for me was 2000), but all is well with Fedora 32.

(And reflecting back on the year 2000: I really like my Thinkpad X1 Yoga, but the old Sony 505 and SR7k were so much smaller, and yet still usable. The Ultrabook wave of 2012 brought us thin, but so large. Although the high-DPI display is nice to get used to.)


I don’t know about the status of FreeBSD on this hardware as of July 2018.
