I'm interested in finding out whether anyone got any distro to work "out of the box" including graphics and wireless on a W500.
Mint 6.0 and Mandriva 2009 were a no-go in this respect.
I know they can be tweaked, but have a very specific reason for not wanting to tweak them on this occasion.
Any real-life experience and pointers (even in the respect of "I've tried this one and it didn't work") will be highly appreciated.

I can't say for sure but I don't think I had to do anything but disable switchable graphics to get Open Suse 11.1 to work "out-of-the-box" on my w500 (btw I use the intel-graphics).
Couldn't get the integrated 3G-modem (Ericsson F3507G) to work though until I had booted into Windows and installed the latest drivers and used it in Windows. Now that works just fine as well.
Haven't even tried to get the fingerprint-reader to work, since I don't use it.
