“Sony Vaio Z-series Laptop” team

"Great functionality on great hardware, all while maintaining freedom through Linux"

This team is a group of Sony Vaio Z-series owners and/or developers interested in getting it to work 100% under Linux.

The group has some amazing contributors, one of which maintains a script that handles most of the heavy lifting AUTOMATICALLY for getting Linux working WELL on Vaio Z machines.

Janitor Script (automatic configuration) can be found at:
