Goodbye Sony Vaio

The time has come I have to return this laptop to my Department, a Sony Vaio VGN-S5VP/B.

I can't say I'm sorry since I didn't like this laptop too much... probably what made me quite biased was the bad story concerning the extended battery (I talked about this issue in this blog).

However, before returning it, a few months ago, I tried to install on this laptop also Kubuntu (I was already using Debian).

The installation was quite smooth and everything seems to work (also things that were not working in Debian, or were quite hard to configure).

You can find details about this installation here: http://www.lorenzobettini.it/linux/kubuntu_vaio.
