MonoDevelop in VAIO Type P

I started to consider developing in Ubuntu environment, but using Visual Studio like API. Options available for me is to install Wine, which will allow me to run windows' based application in Ubuntu, or just install MonoDevelop.

Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala on Vaio P

After upgrading 9.04 Jaunty, I'm able to use Karmic on Vaio P, although I had some trouble setting up the keyboard and setting up mail in Evolution, I think Karmic is much better than Vista. The screen refresh might require tweaks to work properly.

Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala

I just upgraded my Jaunty (9.04) to Koala (9.10).

The enhancement on graphics drivers is really noticeable, and you can now set 1600 x 768 original resolution of VAIO P.

One thing to note here is, if you're using a non-english keyboard, like on my VAIO P, a Japanese keyboard.

On Jaunty, you can use Japanese Inputs thru scim - anthy, while on Koala, you do it thru lbus - anthy
