Yeah, I found that a strange comment too.. I recently installed Ubuntu 
on a laptop and it recognized it was a laptop and installed the battery 
meter, power cable status indicator and such..  What else would I want? 
What else does Windows do when installing on laptops?  Perhaps the 
manufactorers supply some tools for making those silly and useless extra 
buttons work, that's about it. (Like, yes, I really need a shopping cart 
button and an 'i' button on my keyboard. God forbid I wouldn't be able 
to find the Compaq store website! ) :D
