I fiddled with mine this weekend and installed xubuntu. My machine is the
PCG-C1X, and I didn't get a good X config at first. I had to diddle
xorg.conf to get the 1024x480 resolution that this things supports, but once
that was done, it seems to run fine; recognized my wireless card, USB port,

As you say, it is a bit sluggish, but I'll also go and prune out things I
don't need.

Thanks for the kick in the pants- it's just what I needed to apply myself
and get the new OS installed. Now I need to decide if I'll use it enough to
justify buying a new battery and a USB to serial converter. The main reason
I still hang on to my TP 240 is that it has a "real" serial port.
