    Ubuntu 8.10 on a Dell XPS M1710 here.
    Everything (and I really mean everything) works almost out of the box. The only thing that isn't standard is the new NVIDIA closed source notebook driver (180.29).

    Can someone point me to a good explanation of how they are able to do this? I'd love to read some more about it.

    What they are doing... can it, eventually, make it's way to other distros?

    You know that fastboot was diabled by default for 2.6.29? You need fastboot option to force it. Maybe 2.6.30 will have got a working implementation.
