Can you boot ANY linux distribution on this?
Yes, without touching the bios is kubuntu9.04 installed and ran "out of the box" without any issues, except I'm new to ubuntu or debian.
But the first installation worked without consulting any forum or something else.

As described in the other post:
I knew that the issue will be solved by a new release.
But I see a gap for the community, while the release cycles of hardware getting shorter and from the distro is getting longer.
As in my case, when hardware crashes and you want to use new one you should be able to install.
This won't work with longer release cycles of the complete distro.
That's why I think about a SUBrelease.
