I never got around to installing Ubuntu on mine, but I did grab some scripts
which configured the standard desktop, and maximised the screen space in
firefox and thunderbird.
Is Ubuntu worth the effort?
But the screen resolution is still a major PITA. After using it on several
OS trips for internet and photo backup (to USB drive), I think it finally
proved itself inadequate when it was taking 10s to open the photos from my
Nikon DSLR... :(
