    Is there a good linux distro that has good support for Tablets specially the T2010?

    Also, is there a good open source version of OneNote2007?

    I am running Vista right now btw.

    We have our own linux section of this site, which was spearheaded by me.

    Ubuntu 8.10 has fine tablet support support, look at my install guide. Also there are many stickied threads that should be of use to you.

    As for open source OneNote, you can try Xournal. It is more like windows journal though. I am currently trying to make a tutorial showing how to get onenote 2007 running via wine or crossover.

    EDIT: thread moved to linux section.

    Tried Xubuntu, Kubuntu and ubuntu on the T2010. I was able to get the pen working on Xubuntu 8.10 i386 by copying this guy's xorg.conf file.
