Everything works with Zorin OS 7 (Based on Ubuntu, so Ubuntu and it's other derivatives should work as well). Performace wise, it works like a dream, even with the minimum 1 GB RAM. Everything but the touchscreen works perfectly with Ubuntu 13.04 and it's derivatives. The touch screen calibration is /WAY/ off, but it works. I am currently attempting to find a fix for this. Fujitsu P models use a “USB touchscreen”, so I do not think normal calibrators will work. But, I have yet to try. I will update this page with more information when I have it.

| ?? my unit seems to have an Atheros AR928X
|Wireless||Yes- May or may not need the linux-backports for the atheros drive- Some need it, some don't.|
|Card Reader||Not Tested|
|Fingerprint Reader||Not Tested|
|Scroll Button (Between L+R buttons, intended to use the “mole” as a scroll wheel when pushed.)||Not Work (Is used as middle mouse button, so if there is some program that can bring the desired affect…?)|
|Tablet Mode Front Buttons||No (I will figure out a fix. I hope.)|
Everything but the Scroll Button, Front Tablet Buttons, and Touchscreen work perfectly out of the box. This is a wonderful UMPC for Linux, and runs much better (And faster) then I had expected.
Overall, this is almost perfect. It may require a little tweaking, as the touchscreen and front buttons (Below the touch screen, in tablet mode) do not work out of the box. This should be an easy fix, though.
