Loaded Kubuntu 9.10 over the network, everything pretty much worked out of the box. Upgraded KDE to 4.4 release. CPU frequency clocks CPUs down to 800MHz when on battery. Volume buttons, bios keys (backlight control) all seem to work without any modification. Overall very pleased with out of box experience using kubuntu 9.10.
