Love/Hate the Surface Pro 4 for Art

I've been stumbling around trying to get into making art recently using a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 I was assigned by work. This has been generally fun, but (I believe) a recent update has caused my pen input to be troublesome in more than one program. Below are the fixes I've found so far:

Krita - No fix so far, pen works fine for a few minutes and then SYSTEM STOPS NOTICING ANY PEN INPUT (not just in Krita). Reboot resets the driver, I'm guessing it's probably an N-trig vs wintab error.

Photoshop CS 6 - Brush stuck? input non-responsive after a single stroke, acting as if some key was still held. Other applications working fine, so this time it's just a photoshop issue. FIX: Create file "PSUserConfig.txt" with the text "UseSystemStylus 0" in "%Appdata%\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS 6\Adobe Photoshop CS6 Settings\". This will force photoshop to  use the Wintab driver and "ignore Windows Pen and Ink". (found via Youtube)

I'm off to art some stuff, I wanted to document this in case it was found anywhere else. Note: The Photoshop fix above will also work for Creative Cloud edition according to the YouTube poster. YMMV.
