Patanjali Research Foundation

PSA: Research in the domain of Ayurveda http://www.patanjaliresearchfoundation.com/patanjali/ I am so glad to see this initiative taken by the Patanjali group.

Linux Tablet-Mode Usability

In my ongoing quest to get Tablet-Mode working on my Hybrid machine, here’s how I’ve been living with it so far. My intent is to continue using Free Software for both use cases.

PS: http is now redirected to https. I hope nothing really breaks externally.
