Tested on 9.04 and 9.10. Wireless works perfectly although the LED indicator doesn't light up. Compiz works great with ATI proprietery drivers. Web camera shows the picture upside down. Haven't found a workaround though you can compensate for that in Cheese program by selecting Vertical flip in Effects. But there is a patch for UVC kernel module which fix it.
