I've tried various versions of Ubuntu and its variants; seems the older and uglier ones might work fine. As for the prettier ones, the amount of success my graphics card has had loading the LiveCD seems to go up a little every year.

With 10.10, it managed the basics: the bar at the top, maybe one at the bottom, and the installer window. However, both are blank like those dead cartoon faces with "X"'s for eyes.

So I only have one question: is there at all any way Ubuntu can support my ATI RADEON 9600 Series graphics card soon?
