Not long installed this on my new toshiba p200-1ee. It's my first, 'out-of-the-box' install on such a relatively modern piece of kit. Even the Chicony web cam works (which seemed doubtful at the time I bought the lappy around three months ago - a bit of desk research then threw up only tentative signs of hope). The Vista import tool works quickly and for me without problems. This is one seriously well-honed distribution for the eternal noobs out there like me who are geeks of the heart, rather than the intellect ;-)
