Matthew, I think Eugenia was saying "No it's not" to "no it's not working at all" because she believed the laptop vendors went out of their way to try and make this work.

As for "it'll be fixed in the next version", it seems perfectly legitimate to call this deficiency out in a laptop review. I seem to recall lots of things on the Ubuntu wiki that were supposed to be in Hoary but which got pushed into Breezy. It's easy to say what will be in a release that's not out yet, but things can change at the last minute (spatial nautilus *cough*) so the only thing that matters to reviewers is what is shipping right now.

In other words I think you're being rather harsh.
