Notes

I am running Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) 64-bit, and everything seems to be working fine, with the exception of the built-in webcam for which I couldn't find the the appropriate drivers for.

Summary

Overall I'm really happy with how everything is working. I'm definitely glad I uninstalled Windows 7.

Webcam is working for me on my NW21MF. I didn't installed any driver. Only problem is that System is crashing sometimes.
