Latest Ubuntu release unleashes my laptop

As some of you may know, my household server and my ageing Compaq Presario R3230CA laptop both run Ubuntu. Well imagine my surprise when the latest upgrade to Ubuntu (7.04 Feisty Fawn) activated the dormant WiFi hardware. Previous Ubuntu versions didn’t support the Broadcom 802.11g wireless, but judging from my happy results, the Feisty Fawn release does!

Woot!

I’d been keeping Windows on the system to support my WiFi, but now, I can actually nuke it and run this puppy purely on Ubuntu. Sounds like an interesting experiment.
