Tested on Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid), everything seemed to work out of the box, except those components that I didn't test (Express card slot, Modem and card reader). Integrated Mic works out-of-the-box but needs a little boost inside alsa mixer.
Highly satisfied with Linux performance on this laptop. Go with proprietary graphic drivers for full Compiz support.
