Ubuntu on LENOVO ThinkPad Edge Dual-Core

This is a work in progress

Most stuff works out of the box. The main issue is getting wifi to work without issues.

I've used Ubuntu 10.04 with most stuff working nicely for a while, until I got a hard drive issue (I replaced the hard drive with a 60GB SSD). Now I'm running 10.10. Apart from /etc I didn't make a backup of my setup so I have to figure out things again - and I'll keep track of that on this page.

Windows Vafanculo: BSOD in less than 30 minutes

I have to admit it, I am typing this using Windows Vista. I really needed a new laptop. I couldn't wait for amylin to bring me a MacBook, and Apple is just too expensive in Europe. I also considered getting a Dell with Ubuntu, but unfortunately, in Europe they're only selling them in the UK, France and Germany. And then I saw an ad of a Toshiba with 160 GB HD and 2 GB RAM, DVDRW and all that stuff, for 599 euros. So I went there this morning and got it.
