So with all the buzz about Virtual Box's seamless integration I decided to give windows the boot as my desktop enviroment.
What I found... My gateway CX210X does not play well with ubuntu. I had to compile drivers for the pen and it still doesnt work that well. Not only that but there is no way to rotate the screen. Everything else has worked well but its going to be sometime before I go down that route again.
I love ubuntu, hate windows but love my tablet even more than anything!
