Ubuntu 9.04 on Laptop

Really great.

My laptop was originally installed with Windows XP SP3, however the speed is really slow. I installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my Dell D420 with a WWAN 5520 Card. This really gives slow laptop a chance for reborn.
The most impressive thing is mobile broadband support. Right on the first boot after installation, the network editor asked for a few questions.

Within some points and clicks, I am connected with the 3.5G network!

I think Ubuntu 9.04 is more than enough for general purpose use on modern laptop.
