I've mentioned _correct_ support. Contrary to current rather sad state of things.
855GM still has no support for non-VESA videomodes (1280x800 can be enabled only via VBIOS hacks, and is not always properly restored on resume)
(and don't supported with intelfb) (which, AFAIK, has no support for dualhead)
2200BG sometimes starts to unacceptably lag and drop packets after going out of suspend (either STR or STD) and until reboot.
(And this is driver issue)
Suspend to ram works, more or less, but drains power like hungry cat drinks milk, and I just can't leave my laptop in STR for more than two days
without worrying about my on-the-road availability.
Suspend to disk has nasty tendency to ruin my whole hot live X session, since X can't properly restore VT on resume.
Overall performance isn't that bad, either, but I just can't understand, why KATE (Kde more or less advanced editor) takes twice as long to start
as UltraEdit in _emulated_ (VMWare) Windows XP running on this same box.

So, the question remains the same - whom and how much I need to pay to solve abovementioned problems ?
