Ha. So I installed Ubuntu 8.04 on my laptop.
- Mplayer works (just search it on its package manager interface). Styled subtitle also works albeit with glitch on font rendering.
- Using intel graphic chip helps greatly when using it as no need for additional driver.
- In general, using not-so-new hardware means that there’s high chance nothing will be need to be done to use linux perfectly (?). Laptop’s volume control (via keyboard shorcut) also works. So does the touchpad and battery and wifi and… everything 😛
- Uninstalled again though, as I need space for data XD
