After poking around in DSDT for 3 days, I finally fixed the touch screen issue of GPD P2 Max... Apparently the Windows Goodix driver simply does not care about ACPI that much https://github.com/PeterCxy/gpd_p2_max_acpi/commit/4da3e06fde5baef874e3cf525df5c106671ac282

Got my new mini PC GPD P2 Max. Linux pretty much runs out of the box because they use standard stuff everywhere now. Only two issues: 1) memory was terribly fucked upon arrival. coredumps and kernel memory corruption everywhere. Fixed by a BIOS update provided by customer service. 2) The goodix touchscreen does not work seemingly due to ACPI implementation problem.
At the end of the day Google is becoming so dominant on the web that they practically *are* the web, so you either use Google products or you avoid touching a computer. I can't quit Google entirely (Chrome DevTools, GMaps, YouTube are the big ones for me).
How do you deal with something that builds amazing products but also does it in kind of a sleazy way? And maybe is becoming way too powerful? I suppose you become a tech vegan sneaking occasional bites of cheese pizza. https://nolanlawson.com/2019/05/31/tech-veganism/

The joy of actually trying to work on some electronics is that I actually make use of all those things I have only learnt from textbooks and videos but have not actually seen or tried myself.
I'm actually thinking of blowing up several small capacitors to see if it really works in the ElectroBOOM way.
I thought I would blow up the USB hub due to my 5V signal on D+/D- but apparently it didn't. Still waiting for my zener diodes to come.
