  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

GPU (old nvidia 6600) Worked out of the box with NV43 Gallium open source drivers
-> glxgears reports 700+ fps

With nv173.14.35 drivers, works fine too. Some other distros aren't as easy as this to set up.
-> glxgears reports >2000fps

Generic Logitech USB keyboard
Tecknika wired laser mouse
Hard disk (ATA WDC WD2500KS-00M) 250gig
Router Netgear DG834 v4
Old LG DVD-RW drive (LITE-ON DVDRW SHM-165P6S)
sandisk cruzer 16 gig stick
kingston 1 gig data traveller stick

Additional notes:

So far quite impressed, tinsel all appears to work just fine (cinnamon desktop), only snag is a minor bug in software manager where progress bar freezes : google shows this as quite common. Would be nice to be prompted for separate SU account password on installation, bit more secure instead of having to sudo passwd after. I bet many don't opt for separate password don't care/oblivious.
