So I tried Ubuntu for several weeks and while i used it, i never could get decent battery life out of it, never could get my stylus to work (i have a tablet pc) and overall it just seemed unpolished.
i am using opensuse 11-64 bit now on it and wow…simply wow. my stylus works through simply setting it up with the gui. my battery life is 4 hours out of the box and opensuse is beautiful also. (GNOME version)
however - one thing eludes me. i have a webcam integrated into my lid and in ubuntu it worked with cheese right away. but in opensuse i have been trying to get it working for a few days, and after reading lots of threads and trying lots of drivers i still cant get it going. in cheese with one set of drivers, the sceen would be black but when i took a pic it would show up, but most of the time - nothing happens. if anyone has a direction i should go, i’d love to hear it.
and man o man - opensuse has such a more polished feel than ubuntu. but getting used to rpm packages instead of the deb’s of ubuntu is hard.
