    dhfriedman, the only thing that actually doesnt work, is brightness, you just cant set your own level. Video acceleration is working, sound, bt, wi-fi, gpu (both at one time As far as I know).

    running both gpus at the same time seems like a major problem to me...

    I'm happy for you, but here the problem is linux on vaio Z, with switchable graphics (Intel and Nvidia). I think that vaio SR with only ATI graphics is pretty a different thing, no?
    I think that linux itself IS ready for everyday use, but not the way it's currently running on vaio Z.

    you can still use him on vaio, but when you want to run him on battery, then this is a big problem

    For one thing, Sony disables virtualization (VT) in the BIOS even when the CPU and northbridge supports it, so you can't run 64-bit operating systems under VMware on a VGN-Z.

    And, of course, you can forget about working 3D.

    Not on the Z. Just search the forum.
