    For those Ubuntu users out there, do you have any problems that need to be solved? I'm starting up my Linux project again, and i am in a very helpful mood.

    Post any problems you have below, and i will try to get right on them.

    Is the notetaking experience in OneNote the same on linux as it is in Windows? I can adjust pen sensitivity and stuff as well? What are the advantages to using Linux over Windows on a tablet? Thanks, I'm a linux noob as you can tell. :)

    1. Onenote was successful for me once upon a time, and it was the same as windows. i am currently making it work now (i think i am on a breakthrough).

    2. Pen sensitivity has been untested.

    3. The advantages are:
    - Its free
    - Better OS for programmers
    - Unlimited flexibility
    - Most secure operating system, bar none. Doesn't even require a antivirus in most cases.
    - Did i mention EVERYTHING is free? All piece of software are free with the exception of some high end software like crossover.

    Basically you either like it or you don't. I recommend people try it, there was almost a point where i was considering not buying windows 7 because i liked Linux so much.

    I would also like to know how linux works on the x200. I think I will be using fedora, but I have been toying around with ubuntu and I kind of like it. Would there be a difference between the two distributions? I would prefer to use Fedora as long as I can still get the same tablet functionality that I would be able to get out of ubuntu.

    Could you elaborate on this breakthrough?

    I personally don't use Fedora, so I couldn't tell you. As of right now, i can only confirm tablet functionality working natively on Ubuntu 9.04 a Linux Mint 7 (RC). Personally, I would recommend Linux Mint, as it has been a great OS to deal with (extremely user friendly).

    My "breakthrough" on Onenote failed a while back. What was happening was I could install it using Crossover Pro, but only using the XP Pro bottle (XP Pro lacks tablet support natively). I tried to install it using vista bottle (which theoretically would allow for inking), and it decided to be fussy and not work.
