  Works partially
What doesn't work:

Cannot connect to windows 7 printer on home network. Samba doesn't work. I tried every tutorial on the web that I could find. Most Linux forums are full of unanswered questions, and people who cop attitudes to noobs. Sadly, the Windows world does have far better communities and help.
