Linux "Wireless networking on Linux is entering a new era. An era of bliss and ease; where users and network administrators have abundant time for relaxing lie-abouts on sunny warm hills because their wireless systems are humming along contentedly, instead of being vexing and unreliable. OK, so maybe it's not going to be quite that Utopian, but things are definitely looking up, thanks to a lot of hard work by a lot of talented developers. So what's going to be different? A brand-new wireless LAN kernel stack, which is going to reduce the current WLAN herd-of-cats approach to a single unified subsystem that supports all wireless drivers."

The shop threw in Vista Starter Edition for free, in addition to a laptop bag and mini optical mouse. Already dual-booting Ubuntu 7.04, but sound is not working, and I have to fix the screen rez. Maybe I should try Fedora again (stopped at FC4).

Have you got the specifications of the machine? I'm very surprised that the sound isn't working given that most machines these days are loaded with either AC97 or Intel HD sound chips.

Regarding Fedora, If I was you I'd probably wait till Fedora 7 is released or at least track down the sound issue on you laptop; also, with the screen resolution, make sure the correct driver is being used - I am not too sure whether the Intel accelerated driver has been merged yet - http://www.intellinuxgraphics.org/

Fixed the screen rez by switching to the "intel" driver instead of "i810". There's at least one other guy on ubuntuforums having sound problems with my laptop (Acer Aspire 5570) under 7.04.
