"But when attempted to use as a general Windows replacement able to handle anything you throw at it, it falls on its face."

This is BS. My *nix laptop has worked out for me just fine. While it may not be able to handle anything you throw at it, neither does Windows so it's a moot point. It's certainly ready for most people's use as a Windows replacement.

Also, Somebody, you provided info on how to set up the scrolling on the touchpad, but can you tell me how to turn it off? It's driving me nuts on SuSE.
