"Linux was a remote possibility: just why is it so bad as a laptop OS?"

I'm a diehard os x man myself, but I spent about 1.5 days setting up
ubuntu feisty on an Acer Travel Mate TM2480-2779 ($459 after rebate from
newegg). Set up wireless (got WEP going but WPA was beyond my patience),
full resolution from the monitor, and the soundcard going 100%. None of
this was straightforward but it was all plenty doable with sufficient
diligence. You will have to compile a kernel module or 2. It makes for a
nice little linux box once you get everything configured. The acer
hardware is pretty respectable, especially for the price. I'm not quite
ready to trade in my 15" Core2Duo MBP, though, as there is no substitute
for tasty apple hardware.

There are no mysteries about Linux vs. laptop hardware, although
lightly-informed pontification on the subject fuels sites like OSNews.
With secretive hardware vendors unwilling to tell people how their
devices work, yet unwilling to write Linux drivers themselves, it's up
to the community to make educated guesses about things like power
management and the various mobile chipsets.

Anyway, apart from the Python "celebrity" aspect, what's the Python
connection?
