Thanks for the great review, guys! Just a quick note on your sound issue: the usual cause of buzzing is that the microphone input is live in the default mixer settings. Use a mixer app - alsamixer , kmix , whatever - go to the Capture or input view, and disable the mic as an input source, and that'll usually cure it.
I really need to figure out why some devices seem to have the mic input live by default, whether it's ALSA's fault or ours or what. It seems kinda insane.
