I was wondering if I can install Ubuntu 12.10 on my Acer Aspire One 722 netbook. It is currently running Windows 7 Home Premium but I want to use Ubuntu alongside with it.

I am running 12.10 on Acer Aspire One 722 right now. It mostly works fine. my only current issue is the internal and external microphones are not working. There is a bug report.

The graphics performance in Ubuntu is not as good as in windows.

There is a ton of information relevant for 722 in the 522 page:

The following thread in ubuntuforums is also useful.

Update: the internal microphone works after the upgrade to Ubuntu 13.04. Everything works!

Hope this helps
