I just wonder, how great this has become. Just last week I installed latest ubuntu 8.04 to my CF-W7 and even it's fresh, it's still working good.
I also installed vmware server (not so easy, but should be in future when repositories have it), integrated 3G module and some other programs I need daily.
My current business relies heavily into usage of ubuntu and various other open source components and I have never felt so good with this. So big thanks to ubuntu teams!
