I've been running opensolaris on a dell e1505 quite happily, including wireless working out of the box (as well as nvidia drivers, audio, disk burner).

I have to say, though, that is an epic fail - nothing I hate worse than getting an OS prepackaged on a computer and the basic drivers not working.

EDIT: come to think of it, when I got the Dell e1505 two summers ago (how time flies..) it was packaged with Ubuntu, and wireless didn't work out of the box on it either... =)
