Anyone had any success managing his/her Nokia Lumia 635 under any Linux distro to transfer content, access the microsd card in the phone, etc.? Im receiving my device next week and just wanted a heads up

I don't know for sure if my Linux-fluent friend tried everything, but he ended up setting up an FTP server on the phone and doing that.

The device uses MTP to communicate with a PC. Don't know if it'll work well with Linux.
