I have a Starling 4 that works great with Mint 10 and 11.
-Hardware wise system is great. My main complaint is ther system76 drivers that are disabled in Mint.
-Unable to book a Mint iso but Ubuntu ones no problem.
-But that is a blessing in disguise because wireless works better in Mint without drivers than in Ubuntu with system76 drivers.
-With a native ubuntu loaded I go to packages.linuxmint.com and loan corresponding debs. Big ones are mintsystem, mintmenu, and mintupdate.
