I'm thinking of picking up am HP tx1020 tablet but I'm worried about how good it will work with Sabayon. Things like the fingerprint reader are not that important, but I'm worried about how good for ex the passive screen and wifi will work. A passive screen is not a very good choice when taking notes but Windows has an API that makes better results and cancels out invalid input like for ex your hand resting on the screen.

On the Ubuntu forums it seems to work ok with bcm43xx but it isn't even listed on bcm43xx's device page.
According to Tabletpcreview.com the touchscreen works but it is way off in terms of calibration. How would I configure this? Xorg, kernel? I'm not entirely sure but I think it acts as a standard mouse HID device. This is where the big problem lies. Windows has very good calibration tools which makes using the touch screen much easier after some hours of writing.
Media keys and automatic screen rotation? Any patches needed?
I know about xstroke for converting handwriting to machine text and most journal/onenote like apps (have tried them).
I'm sorry, but I can't stand Windows even though It's what most people would say It's the best choice for a tablet. It comes with Vista and by experience I know It's a battery hog. Also I heard about HP denying repair or exchange if installing another OS... BS?
Thanks for any answers.
