Ultimate Edition 2.6 Is Based on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 10.04 LTS has just been released 
| and, with it, the big number of distros 
| based on it start pouring in. Ultimate 
| Edition is an Ubuntu-based release that 
| aims to be, well, ultimate, packing in as 
| much functionality and apps as possible. 
| Ultimate Edition 2.6 bundles proprietary 
| drivers, to get things running out of the 
| box, and plenty of packages for the power 
| users. If you like flashy themes, as many 
| Compiz effects as your graphics card can 
| handle and having everything plus the 
| kitchen sink pre-installed, then this is 
| the Linux distribution for you. 


Easy Peasy 1.6

,----[ Quote ]
| My overall impression of Easy Peasy has 
| been very good. It installed quickly and 
| easily on a very old netbook, it left me 
| about 1 GB of free space out of a 4 GB 
| disk, and it seemed to work flawlessly. The 
| combination of EasyPeasy and the original 
| EeePC reminded me of what netbooks were 
| really all about when they first appeared. 
| While 1 GB of space is not a lot, it would 
| be easy enough to put a 4, 8, 16 or 
| whatever GB card in the SD slot for your 
| own documents, files, photos and such. If 
| you still have one of these laying around 
| somewhere, it might pay you to dig it out, 
| load a very nice modern Linux distribution 
| on it, and use it as a very small, very 
| light, very portable netbook.



EasyPeasy 1.6 release candidate arrives

,----[ Quote ]
| The EasyPeasy developers have announced the
| availability of a release candidate for
| version 1.6 of their Linux distribution
| aimed at netbooks. EasyPeasy was originally
| called "Ubuntu-eee" until Canonical
| intervened and has historically focussed on
| the ASUS Eee PC, however, a number of other
| netbook devices are also supported. The 1.6
| release is based on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, code
| named "Lucid Lynx", which is still under
| development.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
