Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple of weeks on two different computers."

I wasn't saying that the BIOS and ACPI were keeping the laptop from booting or keeping Linux from being installed. I was saying he shouldn't have bought a Toshiba if he was seriously wanted to run Linux problem free. That's great that he bought all Intel, but next time buy a Thinkpad or something else Linux friendly.

Basically I got tired of him whining about things not working without having a clue why they weren't.

Linux BIOS, is that what you are referring to? Honestly I haven't looked at it much at all. I've always looked at OpenBoot and EFI more. I've never had problems with the legacy BIOS aside from it being legacy.
