Toohyetoreply: First off, unless you've got more than 3GB of RAM, I wouldn't recommend the 64-Bit version of Ubuntu. Too many little things don't work with the 64bit version. Hibernate and Suspend - With the restricted drivers from ATI, you won't have success with either of these. The most recent ATI drivers (8.1) are better, but still don't reliably bring the computer out of sleep. The best results I've had for hibernate and suspend are with the radeonhd driver under Ubuntu 8.04. Finally, I have a reliable suspend and hibernation function with an ATI card!!! Rotation - The current ATI drivers don't support rotation with xrandr, sadly. The same goes for the radeonhd drivers. Neither support rotation, and at least talking to those in the radeonhd IRC guys, it's probably not on the top of the priority list. I really hope this does get developed within the next few months, or I'll never be able to dump Vista......well, I can't dump Vista due to OneNote anyway, but it would be nice to be able to use Ubuntu everywhere not Vista. Handwriting - I use cellwriter. It's a great program (in the repositories for 8.04), but it takes a bit to get it trained well. It also has a keyboard function that you can switch to.
