First distro tests on Lenovo G50 - Ubuntu and Netrunner

We may deride Ubuntu for being modern and newb-friendly and not pure Linux or whatever. But that's nonsense. This splendid distribution, especially in its LTS form, eats hardware platforms for breakfast. I have not yet found a single machine that it didn't support, and didn't support almost 100%. Nigh perfect. This last case is yet another example. I guess the path for future testing has been laid out. I may have to play a bit with setting UEFI on and off, and definitely use Ubuntu bootloader to get things going, but from now, other distributions ought to be able to install. Or not. Either way, I shall copiously rant about it to your uttermost delight. Summing up what we saw today, Netrunner works fine, with numerous limitations and heavy memory consumption. Trusty is a perky little beast with no faults or problems, it's lithe and lean and cool, and purrs like a happy kitten no matter where placed or tested. Draw your own conclusions, dear readers. More distro testing coming soon. Mint, Kubuntu, for sure. Some others, too. Read more
