Unlike a year and a half ago, this version of Ubuntu (10.10) recognized my laptop’s wireless card right off. Might have been because it is a new laptop, but there were a lot of advances in the software too. The Software Center is great, taking out almost all the geekiness needed to load programs under Linux and it came preloaded with most anything anyone would need. My big problem was the stuff required to do geocaching was sparse and what of it that was available, didn’t work as well as GSAK and it required a healthy dose of that previously mentioned geekiness.
