Notes

This system does not include a optical drive so you will need another method to install Linux. Everything over USB works fine.

Warning! The Intel Graphics Accellerator and backlight control won't work in Ubuntu 8.10 and 9.04. Karmic (9.10) works fine.

The 3rd button on the pen is not detected by default and requires manual configuration. Screen rotation requires manual configuration (www.thinkwiki.org)

HDAPS requires manual configuration (build kernel module 'tp_smapi' with module-assistant)

Summary

Since Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala and other recent distribution, nearly everything works out of the box. HDAPS and tablet features however require manual configuration.
