In a near future I will need to buy one more laptop for my employee (aye, I have one!) and I'd like to know more about the Slashdot community experience.
What I have in mind is to have as much hardware as possible working under Linux, especially the modem and the irda (if present) as well as all other "basic" hardware, like wired/wireless interfaces and graphics card.
I have no special requirement for the Linux distro, as my personal experience is limited to (in time order) Slackware, Gentoo and KUbuntu. The activities to be carried out are somewhat in between "personal productivity" and "application development", as the guy will travel a lot and will run GCC compilers, PostgreSQL DB and Apache.
What'd be your choice?"
