After looking through many sites and many threads it seems like the ATI AIW 7500 isn't liked by almost every linux distro out there.

I've seen some posts about laptops and the mobility, but I was wondering if anyone has been able to get the Desktop card to work. Would the ATI TV wonder be a better option?

I am a noob when it comes to linux and would like to learn how to use it, and ubuntu is the easiest one for me to install (and it looks good too.)

Thank you in advance.
