    Edit - HardwareSupport/Machines/Netbooks wiki page
    I assume all the people having compatibility issues have installed the Desktop version of UBUNTU I have tried this on a number of times and found issues but after installing the UBUNTU NETBOOK version have found that the issues have disappeared and obviously laptops are different from Desktop IE display drivers and Wifi drivers and so maybe this causes a lot of issues.

    Ubuntu 10.10 (desktop version)
    Toshiba NB200
    Intel atom N280
    Atheros AR9285 wireless
    Realtek RTL8101E/8102E ethernet
    Sound HDA intel : Realtek ALC272 chip

    Everything works out of the box.

    One minor quirk. The bios enabled CPU power manager will make the cpu sleep during boot requiring you to tap a few random keys to keep it awake or it will take 2 minutes to boot.

    Boot it like this and set up your power management preferences, then reboot into BIOS and set dynamic CPU frequency mode to always will now be back to a 20/25 second boot.

    You will no longer see power management icon but from what I can see (brightness/lid close options/dim screen etc) it all still seems to work.

    Internal mic and wireless drivers don't work out of box but both are fixable pretty easily.

    Only two settings for screen brightness (not sure if this is Ubuntu's fault or not though as it might just be a cheap laptop)
    Aspire one D255, one processor version

    Maverick 10.10 (standard release, not netbook)

    note: running from USB 36 GB hard drive. I haven't partitioned the 250 GB drive yet, still browsing Ubuntu forums for any cautions since my wife is interested in Windows 7 starter for her website work. Dreamweaver ($$) isn't on linux yet if ever.

    The hard drive was a left over from a Thinkpad installed in a USB case. Standard install was easy, just ran CD Live on a desktop with the usb drive plugged in. No USB creator required.

    Wireless working out of the box.

    Haven't tried mike.

    Keyboard can set four brightness levels. Gnome panel applet doesn't work.

    Terrible. Broadcom Wireless works very poorly, even though updated to latest version supplied by Broadcom (sta-driver 'wl'). Also battery lifetime cannot be calculated so the computer just dies when the battery is out without prior warning.
