Hi George,

I'm using an HP Spectre 360 with Ubuntu 18 (whatever is the latest Long Term Support version). 

I'm not happy with the results. The touch screen mostly works but it's not really functional in tablet form. It just doesn't work as expected. I got fed up with it and now I mostly use it in laptop form with the keyboard.

I was hoping that Ubuntu would sort out the problem for me with the upgrade to version 18 but that didn't happen. I did an update on the weekend. I'll test it again to see if there are any improvements.
