Lenovo E560 (skylake) - which Linux distro should You choose - UPDATE2


ON 14th of June I moved to Fedora 24 Cinnamon Spin. From the begging I felt that it is much better than Ubuntu. After about 2 months of usage I can share my conclusions with You.

First there were issues with intel gpu caused by new kernel kernel-4.6.4-* but when I switched to kernel-4.5.5-300.fc24.x86_64 it was ok. Luckily that issue was fixed, so now You can use new kernel without problems.

According to http://linrunner.de/en/tlp/docs/tlp-linux-advanced-power-management.html You need to add additional repos and install tlp. It will greatly extend Your battery life. IMHO battery life is better than on Windows 10, that I have installed on other partition.

As I mentioned before - On Linux I do not use Radeon card because I do not need it, so I didn't test how Radeon card will work.

From my experience overall system stability and boot time is better than on Ubuntu. This is my subjective point of view so I won't put here any charts, to convince You ;).

If You have the same notebook model and You need some good Linux Distro that will just work, I suggest You to install Fedora 24.
