When I turned my Surface on the other day it just got stuck in a boot loop. I guess this update ^ might be why. In any case, I'm fed up now with Windows. Every few months it seems like one update or another screws up my device and I have to start over. I installed Linux Mint and ironically it boots faster and has better battery life than Windows (really not sure how this can be possible but whatever). Problem is, how the heck do I install firmware updates without windows? Am I just going to have to live with the spectre and meltdown bugs or will the linux kernel patch fix them for me?
