Linux - I use Xubuntu XFCE - works great G570

First thing I did when I got my G570 - was partly because I hate Microsoft and mostly because the people who run Lenovo / IBM refused to provide the "owners CD of Windope 07" along with the laptop, was to wipe Windope 07 and install Xubuntu Xfce.


Then I installed a heap of really brilliant office, and other technical software care of the Synaptic Package Manager and the Ubuntu Software Center.


Bypassed Microsoft and their crippled crapware in one foul swoop.....
