Most of the distros require work before being usable. The asu theme in
2008.x is broken for all but token uses - switch to illume and read the
wiki about the keyboards. Helps a huge amount.
Still, it will crash at least once a day with suspend failures, fails to
register, BSODs, event/0 runaway, lost SMS messages, ... Even if you
dont use it once registered, its only a matter of a few hours and
something will go wrong.
