Lenovo Updates

I've had my Lenovo ThinkPad T61 (6457A68) for just over a month now. In that time, many updates, both from Microsoft for Windows Vista, and from Lenovo for Lenovo-specific hardware, such as bios updates, and special buttons. I am impressed with the number of updates that Lenovo has been putting out, and am happy that they are (or so it seems to me) supporting their product well.

I am still running Windows Vista, but did have Fedora 7 installed at one point. At that time, I couldn't get the wireless or the fingerprint reader working. I am eagerly awaiting the release of Fedora 8 on 8 November 2007. Ubuntu 7.10 is going to be released in about three weeks, and I may try that in the mean time. I am currently downloading the beta, which was released earlier today.
