    Under Additional Drivers, activate "ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver." The (post-release updates) one fails with an error.

    I really like this laptop. Battery life is the best I've had (longer than my 7hr EeePC). Everything works great out of the box with one glaring exception. You cannot right-click anything. I believe it has to do with the way the touchpad is recognized. There are no distinct mouse buttons, so you are dealing with one big mouse pad (mouse buttons included... almost as if they were trying to emulate a MacBook mousepad). So, when you try to right click, it detects the touchpad function and tries to do that. That means no right-clicking and no scrolling using select+hold. The only way I can use it and keep my sanity is to use an external mouse. That way it works perfectly.

    I'll have to try vanilla Ubuntu 11.04 (Think I tried 11.10 and it did not work out so great). Samsung is ahead of the open source development community with this one, I guess.
    Okay, so I installed Ubuntu 11.10 32bit and everything works perfectly (except the touchpad... again). WIFI works out of the box, but it still asks you to install proprietary drivers - and it continues to work (don't even have to reboot, actually).

    About the touchpad... It appears that Samsung has attempted to take a page from Apple and made the touchpad and click buttons one continuous surface. So, when trying to click and drag it does not work because it is still detecting the touch (before the click). I'm getting used to the different gestures (double-tap scroll, double-tap-hold & drag, two-finger-tap=right-click, etc.), so I'm enjoying still (pretending I'm using a Mac... well, sort of). Gnome-shell works like a charm immediately after installing from ppa as well! Best interface yet for my taste!
