It would be just perfect if we could change Windows 10 for Linux (Ubuntu or any other) or even better to be able too swap between them as needed. Any chance of booting linux on the Surbook? I've seen a few videos on Youtube

I managed to install Arch Linux and it runs great. Just follow the instructions on creating a bootable usb. And the Surbook will boot no problems

Ubuntu 17.10 runs fine, used the isorespin.sh script from http://linuxiumcomau.blogspot.com/2017/10/ to create a boot image, during install you can choose to shrink your windows partition and dual boot.
Touch screen can be used too (http://forum.chuwi.com/thread-4891-1-1.html), stylus is not working properly tough.
