Rather than clutter up other threads, I figured I'd post 'ere so all of us who've picked up one of those bargain-basement Linx Windows 8.1 tablets can share experiences and tips. First things first: have you gone into the BIOS yet? It's a full-on AMI BIOS. There are all kinds of options, some of which I have no idea what they do: try Googling for "S5-Charging Driver," for example, which is disabled by default. Some options look like they might boost battery life, but on the other hand I'd hate to do something which disables USB-OTG by mistake 'cos that's the only way to interact with the BIOS menu... I've disabled Secure Boot and told the tablet to boot from 'UEFI Removable' (and 'UEFI DVD,' just in case) but have had no luck getting it to load an Ubuntu Live USB connected to the USB OTG port. If anyone else figures out how to make that work, let me know - would be nice to have the option to load an alternative operating system. Also: I was pleased to find the machine has enough grunt to run WinUAE (formerly known as the UNIX, then Ultimate, Amiga Emulator), although WinUAE does *not* like touch-screen input. With a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, though, it'd be a perfectly acceptable emulation machine.
