You shouldn't need any special drivers. Just install Ubuntu & use it. Coming from Windows, I think you'd probably like Mint better.

Does Linux work without it?

sorry i don't really understand your question. Do you mean I don't need it, cause it'll work anyway?

If it works without it, don't look for a driver.

If it isn't broken, don't try to fix it.

I've recently rebuilt my main desktop, installing a new Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard, processor, PSU, RAM, and an CD/DVD-reader. Everything works fine on this dual-boot (Ubuntu 11.04, Win7 Pro) box with one exception : I am connected to the internet via an 12-24 Mb/s ADSL connexion from Glocalnet (actually Telenor) and usually get speeds of 15-16 Mb/s downstream and 0.85 Mb/s upstream, which is fairly good for this type of connexion. However, I've noticed one strange thing - if I first boot into Win7 and then reboot into Ubuntu, my connexion speeds drop to around 2 to 3 Mb/s downstream, with a corresponding drop in upstream speeds, as seen in a screenshot available here : https://picasaweb.google.com/100679...

I've been running dual-boots on this connexion for years and never before encountered this problem. I suspect it has something to do with network-card settings, but can't imagine what ; after all, I do get proper speeds when I boot directly into Ubuntu (the default) in the morning. Gigabyte doesn't offer any non-Windows drivers for the motherboard on its website - or if they do, I have been unable to discover them. I should be very grateful for suggestions that would allow me to toggle freely between the two OS ; while I myself much prefer the Ubuntu, I need to be able to boot into Win7 in order to be able to help others with problems on Windows boxes....
