I am considering WinFLP, though I would like to put linux on it, I can't seem to find a userfriendly lightweight distro for it — Fedora kernel panics on boot, apparently an issue with a missing instruction in the CMS, and Ubuntu as well claims being an i686 distro. Maybe mint? But I don't think I can rely on my judgement for this — that's why I'm turning to you, slashdot."
