Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu For over six years I have been hunting for a Linux distro that would allow me to replace my Windows installation. I've tried many versions of RedHat and Mandrake, and more recently, Gnoppix, Kanotix, Ubuntu, Fedora, and Knoppix. In my evaluations, I would start with high hopes that the latest and greatest distro would install smoothly, support my hardware, and create a genuinely usable system, but none of them really worked--until now. I recently came across the first distro that satisfied all my requirements: Ubuntu.

My dear ubuntu defender I was talking about his review! He has found that apm is not working on his laptop with ubuntu not me!

I am pretty sure that on ubuntu you can repair apm because ubuntu is more or less debian. But what advantage I have to use ubuntu if I have to do the same operations to support apm as I do in debian?

PS: APM is probably what you want to use on the R50 since ACPI consumes a lot more battery in standby.

Thanks but my r50p does not have the acpi bug so battery consumption is accettable. With acpi I can put cpu in c3 state and consume very little when I am using it. Unfortunately there are shitty radeon drivers... but this is another story.
