With all due respect, if it's not utilizing sound, wifi or the touchscreen, it really isn't useful to say it "runs Linux" (or DOS, for that matter). It may boot up Linux, but is pretty useless without the hardware.

It is not that the gadget is a problem. The reviewer admits he is a lame Linux user and even though somewhere should be drivers for the HW, he did not bother. He refers only to what worked out of the box. Nothing more...
