My Dell Inspiron 17R just showed up on Friday and I was planning
hacking Ubuntu 12.04 or Debian 7.0 on to it this weekend.  I'm sure
I'll have to deal with EFI in the process.

I'll be heading to http://www.exploriem.org/ which is off the 416 by
IKEA. I don't have a problem hacking together for a bit.
