Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx (Netbook Edition)

,----[ Quote ]
| For the last couple of Ubuntu releases Iâve 
| been running the full desktop edition on my 
| netbook (Acer Aspire 1).  These have run 
| fairly well, and Iâve even had Compiz 
| configured to run the cube and other eye-
| candy such as wobbly windows â although this 
| may in part be due to its slightly upgraded 
| spec (1.5gb ram). However despite swapping 
| Firefox for Google Chrome there were some 
| aspects that were disappointingly slow, this 
| was regardless of the processor-hungry 
| features that I had running.  As a result I 
| decided to give the Ubuntu Netbook Edition 
| a try.
| [...]
| The other advantage of upgrading to 10.04 
| is that this version has long term support 
| (LTS).  Which means that Ubuntu will 
| provide security updates for 3 years, as 
| opposed to 18 months for standard releases.



Kubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 review

| The installation is dead simple, just like
| Ubuntu. If you have installed any Linux OS
| lately, you should not have any problem
| installing Kubuntu Netbook Edition. I
| installed it using UnetBootin which allows
| one to make a bootable USB drive.
| Out of the box, everything worked, from
| Ethernet to Wireless LAN â everything!
| This is great as most of the netbook users
| do not like wandering over Ubuntu/Kubuntu
| forums trying everything to work. Even the
| function keys worked.


Ubuntu Linux Netbook Edition 10.04 (Lucid Lynx)

| Iâve been reviewing various Ubuntu
| derivatives and this week I thought it
| would be fun to take a look at the netbook
| version of Ubuntu.
| Ubuntu Netbook Edition used to be called
| Ubuntu Netbook Remix, but Canonical
| changed the name once this distro became
| an official edition of Ubuntu.
| [...]
| Summary:      Ubuntu Netbook Edition takes most
| of whatâs great about the desktop version
| and wraps it up in a colorful, attractive
| netbook interface.
| Rating:       4/5

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
