    Details: Works as expected without drivers/custom config. The only thing that does not work is the button usually assigned to MSN Messenger. The other buttons (Vol up, Vol Down and Mute Mic) work perfectly. Build quality is good.

    Unhappy Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibility List.

    Ubuntu, all variants and releases, cannot utilize drivers for PCI video cards. There is no troubleshooting for this anywhere. So as usual, I have to keep windows XP.

    Tmobile HUWAI E220 wireless broadband stick worked straight out of the box on my Ubuntu 9.04 powered acer travelmate 201dx (10 years old, surprised it still does anything!). I do however have a "spare" HDD with XP on it so I tried out the stick on that first and used the setup info to facilitate installation on Ubuntu. Must get a drive enclosure for the spare!

    Out of the Box everything works except Wifi. Required ndiswrapper.

    I have attached the needed drivers for the Wifi. This works for a lot of Marvell wireless cards.

    HARDWARE:
    HP NX-6320 laptop
    1.66 core 2 duo
    945 graphics chip on Mboard.
    2 x 1GB 667ddr2 SDRAM
    320 gb HDD
    SIL 32 RAID PCI-e card used for ESATA.

    UBUNTU VERSION;
    super O/S 9.04 running for approx 2 weeks flawlessly.
    Prior version was super o/s 8.10 (not so good with motherboard).

    BIG HARDWARE PLUSES FOR THIS VERSION;
    * Runs instantly + Flawlessly on live USB, + over previous Super_OS.
    * All buttons work (volume, wireless etc). - unlike prior version.
    * Keeps cool + can hibernate. - unlike last time.

    POSSIBLE FUTURE IMPROVEMENTS:
    * Battery life's a little better than vista, but not as much as i expected (little effect from dimming screen, scaling down cpu, changing display resolution etc).
    * Any Load seems to hardly affect the RAM usage (flat at approx 300MB), instead hitting the CPU.
    * The 2 CPU cores appear to be a little less synchronised (lag of approx 1.5 seconds between them).

    TIP THAT GOT eSATA CARD WORKING:
    * Disable 'native' SATA mode in bios first.
    * Transferring between laptop and TB drive (NTFS formats) not as good as vista (CPU + speed).

    WATCHING VIDEO IS EXTRAORDINARILY FAST COMPARED TO VISTA. (e.g. 4-5 playing at once smoothly).

    THE LIVE USB RUNS VERY VERY NICELY - will do a fresh install instead of putting it on top of version 8.10 partition.

    re ASUS M3N78-EM

    what does not work
    1. desktop effects
    2. card reader or digital camera via usb
    One can easiy be turned off but the camera problem is a nuisance.
    Does anyone have the answer.

    Please help if you can. hope the download for the problem comes soon.

    Hardware:
    HP DV6934ca laptop
    2.0 ghz core 2 duo
    Intel onboard graphics (can't recall).
    3 gigs ram
    320 gb HDD

    Current Version:
    -9.04 but about to test 9.10 (mint, kubuntu, sabayon, and opensuse all work as well...with their own respective problems)

    Works well:
    -the HP quicklaunch buttons work Perfectly in ubuntu...no other distro worked out of the box like this!
    -sound works fine as well...even on Youtube (which I've had problems with in every other distro I've tried)
    -runs incredibly fast! (ext 4)

    Not so good:
    -Online videos skip around which is most likely due to the intel graphics...to be fixed in 9.10 I hear. Videos I actually have on my computer run perfectly, however (flash issue I believe)

    Overall...it's about a Billion times better than Vista!...Just bought a brand new quad-core desktop and right off the bat Vista has frozen almost 10 times in less than a week!! I've never had any problems with freezing or anything related on Ubuntu or Kubuntu.
