    I'm running Ubuntu Hardy Heron with everything working except the digitizer and touch screen. Others have gotten it to a somewhat usable state, but the driver is still in development. That means a very long recompile process is necessary to get it working. I'm going to use OneNote for my note taking, anyway, so it is a moot point for me. The hardest thing to set up was the WLAN card, but that's just because I never used ndiswrapper before. The thread I posted contains documentation on how every step was completed, check it out.

    eh, I might just wait till Intrepid Ibex is a bit further along... seem that it works out of the box a bit better.

    Kinda disappointing though, every other system (laptop or desktop) has worked nearly flawlessly out of the box. Also, makes my Hardy USB drive fairly useless if I need to boot in for recovery.

    What a great machine the tx2500z.
    I installed fedora 9 x86-64 Kernel 2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64

    Touchscreen: Works great. Calibration far better than Vista
    Stylus: Works great.Calibration far better than Vista
    Bluetooth: Works great
    Wireless:Works great (ndiswrapper of course)
    LAN:Works out of the box
    Sound: Works fine
    Camera: Havent tested
    Finger printer: Havent tested
    Screen side buttons: Havent tested
    Rotation: Works but Stylus needs calibration.

    Machine is very fast.
    Reboot takes less than 13s
    Mem used when idle is 250mb, Vista uses almost a 1gb when idle.
    I havent tested many other things yet. I ll do when I have time.

    Looks like Intrepid Ibex Alpha 3 is up.

    Grabbing the AMD64 torrent now. Will burn off, install, and report results this weekend... unless anyone else wants to beat me to it ;)

    So... I tried out Ibex, but there are still so many things broken. Yes - installation and boot works fine, but there just as many problems as with Hrady for the time being.

    I did install Hardy and got most of the things working.. and posted a fairly thorough guide if anyone is interested in getting the basics going. Please report and success/failure so I can update as appropriate.
