Am I just lucky?
I first installed Ubuntu 10.04 onto my old Dell Dimension 300 and every thing worked great so I just got rid of XP on my old EeePC 900 and installed 10.04 on that.
Every thing works even the WiFi was easy to set up.
On the EeePC 900 the machine seems to run a lot faster than it did on XP too.
