I'm running XFCE4 on Ubuntu 12.04. Seems to work fine. It's slow but it's a slow laptop. Only 2 GB of memory and a Celeron 2.20 Ghz processor. The wifi card definitely seems proprietary because I get a 35% connectivity from my current distance from my router but when I reboot into Windows, the wifi connectivity is 50%. It would be better to find a laptop ( or build a computer ) with a compatible wifi card preferably an open hardware wifi card / chipset. (2014-06-13T08:25:42+00:00)
