And vice versa. My Mandriva was able to detect my Thinkpad at install
time, and automatically installed "tpctl". This is an open source set of
utilities supporting hardware-specific features like hardware speaker
volume buttons and UltraBase undocking. Mandriva (and probably most
other distros) also appear to have the Centrino wireless issues licked.

It's just that Windows is still better supported by Thinkpad's supplied
software, and you can't buy a thinkpad without WinXP.
