I got a new cheap computer at work. This machine MSI GE620DX has one rather uniqe feature, the screen is 15,6 inch and has a resolution of 1920×1080. Which is about the only good thing to say about the computer except the low price point.
So how about linux compatibility? Not good it turned out to be. Of all versions I tested – Ubuntu LTS, Ubuntu Oneric beta and a few more. Only Linux Mint Debian Edition 201109 got both screen resolution AND wireless working. Good job Linux Mint!
