Never happened to me since I bought my first laptop in 2006. Partially true for XP, it had no WLAN driver OOTB, but LAN worked. That's what I get for using chink Acer shit, I guess? Funnily, back then Linux distros had better hardware support for laptops, at least for me. I just couldn't make everything work right after 2011 so I just have up. The UI looked better as well.

Sounds like you need to put away your shit computer, because you're too stupid to own it.

I have no issues doing any of the above in Linux, and I'm a Windows fag.

OP is full of crap. Linux has hardware acceleration. If you have hardware, it will use it to accelerate. You almost can't screw it up. Even if you don't install the proprietary drivers from nvidia or AMD, then open source ones that come out of the box on most distros *do* work well enough for desktop web browsing/movie watching usage, but not for gaymes.

Not OP

There is no hardware acceleration in Linux for the IBM Thinkpad T60p. The driver is non-existent.

I've searched high and low and the only solutions I've ever seen offered were to use the "generic driver" that can't drive a 360p YouTube video or downgrade to distros from 2009 because apparently there might have been a working driver then but it's broken now.

>> No.53273133

Try the open source Radeon driver, retard.

It should actually be better than the legacy windows driver at this point.

>> No.53273167

That's what you get for using it on the desktop with it's currently trash GPU support.

>> No.53273175

The Windows 7 driver is just a rebadged Vista driver and it works fine.

The open source driver lets you run your desktop at 1680x1050 resolution and 32 bit color but other than that there's zero hardware acceleration.

The FireGL v5250 was never a mainstream card and ATI dropped support for it when they were still ATI.

How so? Open source radeon r300g supports it out of the box. You won't be able to run Ubuntu desktop effects properly without hardware accelerated OpenGL.
