    Throws a module error on boot, but does not affect the system in any way, so far as I can tell. Everything works: sound, graphics, webcam, etc.

    Can't believe my computer was capable of being this quiet.

    Ubuntu 10.10 Mav Meerkat.
    Dell D630, 4 Gb RAM, mainboard GPU, Intel 5300 WiFi, BlueTooth
    Everything works booting from USB and after installation (including sleep).
    Had to enable 802.11n data rates on the WiFi, but zero issues with it.
    VirtualBox 2D & 3D video acceleration works for Windows guests.

    Note: I have *not* tested the VGA-out nor the built-in microphone *yet*

    Acer 531 [ZG8] - Netbook.
    Intel Atom CPU N270 - 1.60GHz
    1GB RAM

    Dual boots with Win XP.

    Worked 'out of the box' running Ubuntu 9.04, 9.10 and currently 10.10.

    The only outstanding issue I have is with 'Skype' software where the microphone doesn't work. However, the microphone works fine in other applications.

    Internal webcam doesn't work out of the box. Need to install r5u87x drivers (or something like that) to get it to work. Maybe some more changes to get internal mic to function properly. Card readers not working.

    Yet another two succesfull installation !

    1) Lenovo Thinkpad
    2) X200
    3) Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

    Worked out of the box, installed suggested video driver, running very nice with dual screen mode (the guy is running Windows on one screen and Linux on the other). It is very funny because another guy is using the same machine with Win 7 ULTIMATE, and as soon as he connects the projector or anything else to the VGA port of the laptop, the entire system break down and to switch it off you have to remove the battery...

    1) Lenovo Thinkpad
    2) X200 Tablet
    3) Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

    Worked out of the box, no need to install anything. The Intel video card is supported by the standard 2D and 3D driver (some limitations for the 3D mode, but the guy is the CEO of the company so is not really playing with it...). Amazing how the touchscreen just worked, without installing the 500+ megabytes of packages required in the old XP install... Installed dual boot (Win XP/Ubuntu).

    Kubuntu 10.04 (Upgraded to 10.10 . Seems to work the same. Looks cooler.)
    Gateway/MPC
    E-475M (the one with the crummy amount of video RAM)

    Installed without any special effort. Works great for what I do.

    Swapped out the broadcom based factory wireless for an Intel 3945 802.11g card.

    I don't suspend or hibernate. It seems to mess up the wireless.

    Not sure if memory slots or IEEE 1394/firewire work, I don't use them.

    LT2514U 10.1" netbook

    I bought this netbook from Best Buy for $180 bucks. Came with Windows XP so I immediately replaced it with Netbook Edition 10.10. Loaded without any problems at all. It didn't even require any wireless setup "dinking".

    The machine was pretty slow and felt kind of buggy with XP running only 1GB of RAM. After installing Ubuntu it was wonderful and fast! One of the best systems I have played with lately.

    Thanks Ubuntu!
