I want to know, if this bug is fixed, because all previous versions of Ubuntu didn't work for me. So I just want to know, should i leave Windows 10 and go for Ubuntu 17.10. Thanks!
I am using Ubuntu 17.10, and I have Intel BayTrail graphics. No freezes encountered so far.
The patch mentioned in the linked post was merged in kernel 4.11 and is still present in kernel 4.13, which 17.10 uses.
While this may not fix the problem for all BayTrail devices, it's widely reported to have improved or fixed this issue.
