 +===== Notes =====
 +Back-light Issue can be fixed (on Ubuntu based distros) by using ''​sudo setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=0'' ​ in the terminal upon boot (you may have to login blind and enter your password after the command, then add:
 +''​while [ true ]; sleep 1
 + sudo setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=0
 + ​done''​
 +To /​etc/​rc.local (at the end of the file just before the ''​exit 0''​ line). You can set B= to anything from FF (total dark) to (00) full bright, B=60 is about the halfway mark. (open as root ''​sudo pico /​etc/​rc.loca''​)
 +Alternatively,​ edit two lines in /​etc/​default/​grub to read:
 +''​GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="​quiet splash acpi_backlight=vendor"​
 +Then run ''​sudo update-gub''​. This will enable brightness function key (albeit in reverse function) ​
 +===== Summary ===== 
 +Using most some older distributions Linux should work out of the box however most newer releases suffer from back-light issues. Other than that Linux should work fine using. ​
