Mine came with a default windows install using up all 4 primary partitions, leaving no obvious way to create a dual boot system.

Also, mine doesn't have Bluetooth, and has a core solo, instead of duo.

Current status: I've been able to install Linux, and have a video-call using skype and using the built-in webcam and wifi.

VGA-out works too.


The MSI Wind12 U200 works with fairly well with Linux, no real problems to report.

I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days..

Installed Ubuntu 11.04 32bit with no particular problems. For integrated webcam, don't forget to turn on by the keyboard (FN + F6 keys). Wireless goes good, without additional driver required. Bluetooth DON'T WORK, but I'm not sure I've ever worked
