I also have a surface pro running Fedora and Emacs.
I use (grab-and-drag-mode 1) which helps a bit.

A couple of years ago I made a command completion mode when I used Emacs
on the Openmoko phone. It has since bitrotted but the idea was to
present all unique stems of all possible completions. This was
convenient while not having a keyboard.
