Running Gentoo amd64 with 2.6.31-rc8. KMS and suspend/resume work great.
N-Trig touchscreen/digitizer works using the latest drivers from Dell (2010-02-09 2.254 A3), recent kernel (2.6.34-rc4), Xorg-Server with MPX support (1.8) and the multitouch enabled evdev drivers from Older versions might work as well, I just listed mine.

All in all everything works pretty well, because it's almost completely based upon Intel hardware.

You produce a great point in your own final paragraph. We couldn’t agree more together with your points. In today’s modern world, your approach to this issue is lacking in today’s kids.<a href=“”>Timberland Outlet Stores</a>

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking.<a href=“”>Ray Ban Outlet Store Online</a>

Very poor. I've tried a various distros and I've had a problem with all of them.
OpenSUSE, Fedora - wireless network card didn't work.
Ubuntu - screen “touches itself” in the bottom-left corner all the time.
Debian - sometimes worked, sometimes not (freezed several times) and the Ubuntu issue mentioned above.

It's worked after I installed the restricted driver on ubuntu but it seems to disconnect when there is no activity :(
