    I'm trying it, globally the result is ok. But there are two problems I encountered:
    first one with the realtek network driver. Since I'm in dual boot with windows, there were some troubles with linux use of it but realtek has a linux driver for its network card, so you jst need to install it.
    second one, libre office doesn't work, whatever I try. I rode that it is kind of a big trouble, but maybe more general to ubuntu 11.04?
    besides those two minor problems, everything allright.(well, libre office problem is a big one ^^)

    I'm having trouble with my wired networking as well. Mind sharing where/which drivers might be the way to go?
