Notes

~ The internal mic works, but it has some distortion.
~ Things like Keyboard backlight, Light sensor and Fn keys will eventually work as people in http://code.google.com/p/vaio-f11-linux/ are working to bring these features to Linux.
~ In order to make the fingerprint reader work, go here: http://darkblue.homeip.net/fingerprint/Forum/topic.php?TopicId=26
~ Oddly bluetooth works as mentioned before, but I could not find it in lshw log.

Summary

Many things work out of the box in Ubuntu 11.04. Maybe in the future this laptop will became a Linux friendly notebook.
