OpenSUSE 11.3 (Gnome): More using than testing. Haven't found any glaring items that didn't work or needed software modification. Two issues mentioned elsewhere: system hibernation when lid/screen closed, screen rotation with pen support. Have not tested screen rotation; no problems with pen; system setting for lid/screen close, I have it set to Suspend which the system does.
OpenSUSE 11.3 works out of the box.
