Ten sticking points for new Ubuntu users

My biggest problem so far is the lack of suspend/resume. It is broken on my nc6320. The bug is reported by me and confirmed by to others, and version.log, dmesg.log and lspci-vvnn.log has been uploaded, but nobody cares. If somebody knows how to get the right people to look at it, here is the bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/219657

At the moment I use fedora, but I guess might be coming back when somebody fix suspend/resume. Windows XP is no alternative, beeing hopelessy slow out of the box on that laptop, even with 2 GB RAM and Core 2 Duo processor, and even worse documentation. (Even though I guess it's more of HP/Compaq mistake than a Microsoft mistake. I have seen some fast XP installations.)

Also, the current Ubuntu is way too brown-looking on my screen, but that should be easy to fix, as I've seen both Mandriva and Fedora has a fix for it :)
