That is a one year old post that also never got substanciated... and anyways, the entire point is to wipe windows and thus also this "worm".

The official Ubuntu-Mate 19.10 images for the GPD-Pocket work out of the box for the GPD Win1 as well:

Only problems I could find are that the touchscreen and SD cards bigger than 8GB aren't working, but that seems to be the case with all more recent stock Linux kernels.

You might still have to downgrade your BIOS though... didn't test that.

Also found this:

The 4.18.0 Kernel .debs you can download as parts of the utils package work with Ubuntu and allow large SD card usage. Also no touchscreen support on my Ubuntu 18.04 installation with this Kernel though.

But KDE runs very nicely on the GPDWin was well, just made the switch. Less memory required than Gnome3.
