Fedora 9 on Sony Vaio CR363

Feeling Great for adding 1st comment….
Ya i have installed Fedora 9 on my new sony vaio CR363 and wiped out the vista home premium.

all most Everything is working fine i.e. my sound, display, etc..

issues which are still present:
1) Few Function keys are not working
2) Webcam is still like a dead man!!!

Note:
1)after Fedora 9 installation, just download all updates and then use it so that everything works properly.

2) if your touch pad is not working then just gooogle it you will find the solution easily.

So overall experience is good and ya you can easily switch to Fedora 9 so Go Ahead with Linux…..
