Ubuntu Friendly was an open hardware validation programme for desktops, netbooks and laptops, allowing us to validate systems that are known to work well with a particular release of Ubuntu as "Ubuntu Friendly". This programme was started during the Oneiric 11.10 cycle and finished in 2013.

Hardware Support Wiki

The Ubuntu Community used to contribute to a table of hardware that has been tested. This was phased out in preference for the Ubuntu Friendly programme. However, if you were looking for this information, you can find it here:
