Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu Linux, has struck back at claims made by Microsoft's Brandon LeBlanc about Windows' success in netbooks compared to Linux. Most of the claims made by LeBlanc are refuted quite accurately by Canonical's Chris Kenyon in a blog post titled "Microsoft, FUD and the netbook market".

I've got a Samsung NC10 because of it's pretty good reviews and I was curios if it works out of the box!

It does. Putting Linux will make things work the same? Yes it does. What I do first to make Linux to work the same as Windows: install flash, banshee music/video player and codecs. In rest is the same as Windows. I found only one problem to it as it did crash the webcam detection. In rest all works out of the box!

Good point Canonical!

Do brightness keys and Wi-Fi on/off key work for you in Linux on NC10? Also, what about suspend/hibernate?
