"While it worked great in OpenBSD 4.4 and worked OK in various Linux distributions with newish kernels, I was having intermittent crashes in Ubuntu while using the adapter. I'd be using the laptop with the CWD-854 for a couple of hours and, without warning, the screen would freeze and nothing short of a hard restart would bring it back.

"Well, I finally decided to upgrade to 9.04 (on the cusp of 9.10's release, if you hadn't noticed). I'll have a review in the near future. (Bet everyone can't wait for my 9.04 review when 9.10 is almost here, right?)

"The upgrade from 8.04 to 8.10 and then 9.04 took about six hours, accounting for both download and install time."
