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... :(
