Cool Not a question just a statement Samsung NC10

Not a question just a statement been looking for an ASUS Eee 1000H for a few weeks here in the U.K to no avail...
Anyway got hold of a Samsung NC10 with much the same specification and price. Ran it for a day or two with the default OS xp . Then I added a USB DVD drive and tried Mandriva 2009 live . Checked out the hardware only the bluetooth seemed to be a little tricky. So I installed 2009 power pack as as a duel boot system to see how it went . Went like a dream so I have now ditched the default OS and run Mandriva 2009 pp on its own , everything works out of the box even the bluetooth.

Glad to hear it's useable with Linux. Did the function/multimedia keys work as well?
