A look at Eeebuntu Base 3.0

,----[ Quote ]
| Tim Conneally tries out the bare-bones Ubuntu distro specifically designed 
| for the Asus Eee PC.

| For Eee users familiar with Ubuntu who know the open source programs they 
| frequently use, Eeebuntu Base is worth checking out. It is stripped down not 
| to the absolute basics, but to the point where very little elbow grease is 
| needed to get the system running efficiently.   



_EeeBuntu made my wife happy_

,----[ Quote ]
| My wife bought an eeePc 701/4G earlier this year.
| I was checking all the Windows machines for MS and anti-virus updates.
| When I turned on her eeePC it gave a low disk warning. I tried cleaning
| everything off the computer that she didn't need; however, I couldn't
| get enough free disk space to update Windows. After I had plaid with it
| for an hour or so, my wife told me she didn't use it anymore because it
| was too slow. She told me I should install Linux on it </shock>.
| I installed the EeeBuntu remix on it. She has been using it for the past
| 2 days. It runs pretty well when the CPU isn't supporting an anti-virus
| program as well as the OS. It has all the applications she needs, and
| still has 1 GB of SSD left for more of them.
| It's the remix of Ubuntu 8.10.
| When she is happy, I am happy.
| Edit: I'm not complaining about Windows. It was just the wrong OS for my
| wife's needs.


Easy Peasy Eeebuntu Netbooks

| Recently I purchased an eeepc 1000H and was quite impressed with the new and
| different operating system. I hail from a windows only background and
| anything apart from the Microsoft offerings I have left well alone, until
| NOW. The eee came with something called xandros installed and although fairly
| basic it did give me a taste of linux and I wanted more.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
