I'm using asus A8E for business with ubuntu 8.10 and it's running just fine, one curious thing: the laptop is much less noisy running linux, still it appears faster compared to pre-installed Windows Vista.

I just get one “bad” message in dmesg, after a couple of hours running:

ACPI: EC: missing confirmations, switch off interrupt mode.

But I'm still looking around to understand what it means, apprentely everything is working fine.
