Notes

Using Ubuntu 8.04 on an Acer Aspire 5735-4624, the ath9k wireless driver is not terribly reliable. It had a tendency to disconnect frequently from my network. I bought an MVix 802.11n 'nubbin' and downloaded the Linux driver source from MVix. With a bit of coaxing I got it compiled, and disabled the ath9k in modprobe.d/blacklist. The nubbin works great. I don't know whether the 9.04, 9.10, or immanent 10.04 ath9k drivers would solve this.

The 3d part is rather slow, using the new kde compositing features is slow, not as fast as Vista.

I will try on this day to install archlinux x86_64, i will keep informed

Opensuse 11.0 installed easily. Graphics are good, but images are elongated horizontally, perhaps due to the 16:9 screen aspect ratio.

I have yet to have the memory card reader work with Intrepid Ubuntu. :(
