I'm not sure which OS you mean.. Debian works great on my laptop.
In my line of work, I couldn't do without a good portable UNIX/X
machine. Are you having problems with your laptop?

Debian's primary focus, it seems to me, is to put together a distribution
built out of free software. Not the newest, fanciest, best, most
stable software ( although being free and the absolute best is not
usually mutually exclusive, it is occasionally ).

This is the Debian laptop list, is it not? I think this thread has 
gone a bit too far offtopic.

Then help to make it work. Either use your time or your money,
and choose who to give it to. Else, you can sit on the sidelines
and hope.
