    Considering it's Cisco that foot the bill to provide H264 support I'd bet the motiviation isn't browser interoperability, but compatability with some video conferencing solution that's on the way.

    Since it is free, at least I can't buy this one in advance, anticipating Linux support is coming "soon".

    It does, but it only reports whatever string is in place of the board name. While it would be handy to see "Lenovo T510" on the list, it is simple to check what string identifies your motherboard:

    Right, but the 3.4 release notes indicated this was now a component of LO itself, and not a third-party addon via canonical. I assumed that since I installed the upstream provided build, it would...

    Maybe it is just me, but I grabbed the 3.4 deb install pack, installed all the debs in said tarball (even the languages I don't use, since I didn't want to sort through them), but don't seem to have...

    So does this mean that on a laptop using intel drivers, one could actually plug in an external monitor and specify that the internal "LVDS" panel *stays* primary? Thus avoiding the screen reorder and...
