ThinkPad X200 Tablet

Lanedo was so kind to offer a notebook upgrade for me and on Tuesday I happily received a ThinkPad X200 Tablet.

I will spend the following weeks setting up the machine to replace my current X60s by Fedora 12's release date.

Wednesday evening I started to install Fedora 12 Alpha via USB pendrive and managed to get a bootable device. The screen was flickering like hell and, after a large upgrade yesterday, things are usable now.

The next step will be to get the Wacom tablet working. Fedora has a pretty recent Xorg server (Ubuntu is actually lagging behind this one); but the wacom drivers don't seem to work with it yet…
