in fedora9, kde4 version . . . i've installed vbox and have all the media stuff working. sound, dvd, mp3 ect. (forums are good references), i'm still new only 9 or so months in from windows. I installed ubuntu, then sidux. always wanted to try the famous fedora, and since version8 the live cd's have been able to detect most of my hardware.
I'm using an hp dv6263cl laptop w/ duo core and 2gb ram, intel 3945 wireless, still have the devil vista that came with it, multi-booting with antiX m7.1 and puppy k2.6.25 and now i've added fedora9 into the mix.
oh yea, still dunno what i'm doing . . .
but I like it so far. 10 months ago i only "heard" of linux.
