I purchased a new laptop this morning (after having done my usual research
making sure everything work with Linux). I had Ubuntu 12.04 fully updated,
all my software installed, and backup restored in under an hour! My MFP
was working also. I spent considerably more time getting my in-law's
Windows 7 laptop (same brand btw) ready a couple of weeks ago. Updates &
SP, printer drivers, malware removal tools and Office took much more than
an hour to get through. Then another 30 minutes removing crap-ware that
came with the laptop.
