    Added my Mörgæs: Would be better to post this in Compatibility List, as it's only a minor problem.

    1. Ubuntu 13.04
    2. Samsung
    3. XE303C12 (ARM Chromebook)

    Lots of problems, most of them solvable. The really big problems are some random freezes and kernel panics and lack of graphics acceleration. After plenty of tweaking it is usable, but barely. Some software is missing from the ARM repo, like Stellarium, which wouldn't work anyway, or it would be unbearably slow.

    Anyway, the point is: if you want to run Ubuntu on this thing, you can expect to have plenty of work. It's a pity, as the hardware is awesome, it has a lot of potential, but the software is lame.
    DON'T PANIC!

    hp envy 17 2110ed
    ubuntu 12.x 13.x

    I've never spent so much time on getting basic things to work

    * trouble booting
    * trouble with suspend to ram
    * overheating
    * function keys dont work
    * jumpy touchpad, almost enough so to just throw the thing out of the window and buy a samsung with windows 8

    The booting/suspend/overheating problems stem from discrete graphics and trying to switch them off with vgaswitcheroo. If I turn off discrete graphics with vgaswitcheroo, there is no overheating. (though there is 'heating') But then suspend to ram doesnt work. (lock up)

    Touchpad I partly fixed with xinput, but not entirely satisfactory

    I use my own script for function keys for modifying screen brightness

    the laptop looks very cool though.

    Is linux ready for the desktop? Not if you have a laptop on your desktop.
