    And yet this is the same distro that recently released their Unity netbook desktop long before it was fit for use - sluggish due to their use of the immature Mutter WM, and all but unusable from the amount of screen space the desktop consumes.

      Maybe I'm just a fu**** retard that wants one because I like it.

      But open source 3D-support is essential since I want my compositing running. Actually I can use fglrx for that at first but on the long term the binary grapics drivers are a pain in the ass.
      Well i guess i am used to give advice to people concerning new purchases. Most people who know me in person always ask me before buying.

      Think about power consumption, power managing this beast is much more important than turning compositing on when running the opensource drivers...
