Ubuntu Linux is the most popular desktop Linux, especially on small netbooks. Last year we bought an MSI Wind U100 for my wife. Of course I installed an Ubuntu Linux on it. The Jaunty version (9.04) was very good for this machine. The video was a bit slow, but everything worked. She wrote her thesis with that as well.
When Ubuntu 9.10 is released I upgraded immediately, because I read, that the Intel video support is better with it. I also realized that sound and Skype is better as well. Unfortunately this is not the case with MSI Wind U100 (My other computers work happily with 9.10 though).

I’ve just bought an Alcatel X200 modem. I had problems with it on Ubuntu linux. I found some solutions that use wvdial or gnome-ppp, but in the latest Ubuntu, the NetworkManager is the default, and it can be used with several 3G cards.
I discovered a solution to make it work in Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope)
