Ubuntu 9 was fine, Ubuntu 11 is a headache.

comment Will this laptop run on ubuntu?
sure it will 'run' ubuntu, why wouldn't it? ... if you mean whether or not it will support it's onboard wifi/bluetooth/webcam/etc is another matter. However that site does not list details on those. It also fails to list much more basic details, like the CPU and RAM on it, on my mind that causes alarms to go off -- ie. I'd stear clear of that product, or if they do this on all their stuff, I'd drop that store altogether. I'd go with a store that does list those very important details.

comment Reasons why crontab does not work
+1 That was the primary reason why I had a headache with a cronned script that used grep and ls, the path was empty under cron's env, heh.
