I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 that I have been running Ubuntu 5.10 and now
6.06LTS on.  I started with Breezy in January of this year, and have
been running Dapper since its release in June of this year.  I have to
say that, aside from some strange 'pauses' every once in a while, it
seems to perform fine.  Both wired and wireless nic ran fine under
Breezy (I haven't checked wireless with Dapper as of yet), the USB
devices - cam and usb drives worked fine under both versions.  Sound
works fine, cd/dvd works fine (for viewing use xine - totem just sucks).
