LXer: Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy -- first impressions on the $0 Laptop

Published at LXer:

Gutsy is running fine -- at times -- on the $0 Laptop (Gateway Solo 1450, 256 MB RAM, 1.3 GHz Celeron). I say "at times" because sometimes power management works, sometimes it doesn't. That part is a bit troubling. It was going fine for awhile, but then I ran a couple of live CDs, some successful, some not (Mepis 6.5, Ubuntu 6.06, DSL 3.3). None of the live CDs ran as well as Ubuntu 7.10, given the latter's superior hardware detection and handling. But after running Mepis (and the live CD probably has nothing to do with it), I rebooted into Ubuntu 7.10 and the fan kept on running. I put the laptop into suspend mode, and when I came out of it, the fan stopped.
