Tried installing Ubuntu 16.04 and Android-x86 6.0-rc1 but touch screen does not work on either OS.

Support for the Surface 3 touch panel is already in Linus' tree, and should be released with v4.8

Relevant commits:

427ee20610a7c252e99d08e08e70a4203c6059d0 Input: surface3_spi - Prepare to add support for Surface Pen
72fb4765ac9eea56a94282f29cdc70706f21494e Input: surface3_spi - add surface pen support for Surface 3

If you ask your distro kernel maintainer nicely, they might include the changes with their driver backports, or you can build your own kernel.
