I am looking for a Linux distribution for Lenovo Yoga 3 14. Ideally, the distribution should support:

Yoga has a touch screen and can rotate its screen to become a tablet - I would like to take advantage of it.

I'd love to be able to easily use a web browser when in tablet mode. I am looking for a distro which supports the following features:

  • two-finger scrolling
  • on-screen keyboard when inside a text field
  • gestures to go to the previous page
  • rotating the screen
  • disabling the keyboard and the touchpad when in the tablet mode

I've read that features like scrolling are supported on the browser level in Firefox (with the Grab and Drag plugin) and Chromium. The touchscreen is well supported by Gnome, KDE and Unity from what I read.

Personally, I've tested Ubuntu 16.04 with Gnome and Ubuntu 16.10 with Unity neither of which felt right in the tablet mode.

Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus with its Unity 8 is going to be the distribution I was looking for. I've just tested Unity 8 and its touchscreen support is awesome.
