What works:

Pretty much, everything is working GREAT!! But I just built this system a couple of weeks ago. Give me time - I'll find ways to break it. :)

What doesn't work:

So far - the sound-system+bluetooth functionality is a bit quirky. I wanted to use a bluetooth headset for both sound and microphone. It didn't work. Sometimes I could get good sound quality. Once (maybe twice), I got the mike to work. But after I got the mic to work, things never got quite back to normal. Someday I'll revisit the problem.

I'm having some weirdness with panels right now - specifically the dual monitor panel applet. But I must say ... version 17.2 is GREAT!! Version 17.1 caused me lots of headaches - with many applets that I began to experiment with on version 17.0.

What was done to make it work:

the bluetooth connection can be set to a "high fidelity mode, or duplex (sound and mic). When set to duplex - generally nothing worked (except for once or twice, but I don't remember how). When set to high-fidelity, the sound was good.
