Question for those running Linux on a Dell XPS 13 with a 4k display. What distro do you use? I tried using Ubuntu 16 but had to uninstall it due to absolutely terrible battery life and heat.

Ive been doing fine using the Linux subsystem for windows, but I kinda wanted to give Linux another go and dual boot just for the heck of it.

    I went with Manjaro i3 because I needed something more stable than Arch Linux. xfce is another good DE if battery life is a big concern.

    @starrynights89 I was also looking at manjaro, are you satisfied with it?

    Fedora with Gnome desktop. You need to scale the font separately using gnome-tweaks.

    @DanijelH I use Manjaro (not on the XPS) and it's my all time favorite distro. I'd highly recommend it, especially the GNOME edition.

    @DanijelH It's more modern then other Linux distros and also more stable. You get the best of both worlds and it's my favorite all around distro.

    Fedora 28, gnome Wayland, tlp and powertop for optimizing battery life.
