I would if it was just few or minor things for a distro I had faith in,
then I would put in the time to do detailed reporting. Like for that
same notebook that basically wasn't supported by Freespire, I DID enter
a full compatibility report in Ubuntu's wiki, noting the things that
needed something extra to get to work. (Which were very minor things
btw, such as the n-in-one card reader)
( That report is here:
So I could recommend it very highly for Ubuntu, given that it costs
about 600 US$ for a light weight, widescreen 1280x768 notebook. Had I
tried the Freespire Live CD to test if the thing supported Linux then I
would probably decided against buying it...) Ubuntu however supports it
right down to automatically mapping Firefox and Evolution to the custom
'Internet' and 'Mail' keys on the thing, configuring
battery/power/performance settings, etc.
