I have been installing Ubunut, Mint, Fedora and SUSe Linux in various flavours on the G770. Without SUse everything worked fine.
First thing I have to admit is the fact, that the co-installed AMD ATI Radeon 65XX Chip does not work properly. It even does not work under Windows 8.
This should be no suprise because of the fact that Intel chipsets do not cooperate with AMD-Grpaphics because this unfaithful alliance only works on a Wintel Operating System.
The most successful Linux distro is Linux Mint on this Laptop, because it simply works and appears to be much smarter and faster than MS-OS ever was.
I grew up with CP/M and 8-Bit, so MS was the first one who adopted CP/M and created MS-DOS somehow at last.
But what's going on right now concerning Windows 10 makes me feel sad. All things that run successfully like VB 6, QBasic and *Base applications have been bailed out in order to make a more “sovereigne” os. I'm doing fine with Linux. Maybe MS wakes up some day and understands what computer users really need: easy and simple tools to master their work. From now on I am using only Linux. Farewell, Windows!

Poor compatibility, heated bottom of a laptop, processor with intel graphics strenuosly work, fear for overheating, testing with ubuntu 12.04. On a windows 7 home basic flight norm =)
