Ubuntu 10.04 netbook remix Cont’d

April 29, 2010 Leave a comment

Here are some more screenshots. I have adding packages as I need them so far everything is working great. The new does take some getting used to. Although the learning curve was over after about two minutes. The best thing I like about remix over the desktop edition is the lightness of the user interface and the unobstructed path from my thoughts to an action happening in the operating system. Whether it’s opening a new application or anything else.
The lack of clutter is very refreshing as well. The bar at the bottom is gone which is great and gives me some extra usable space.

Ubuntu 10.04 beta 2

It looks great. I have been running it as a virtual machine for couple of weeks and so far so good. The boot time is fast, the gnome layer is snappy. Though until I install it on a real machine, can’t say how it will be. In the past, Ubuntu (in fact Linux) has a problem with embedded graphic cards from Intel. The problem is the drivers aren’t readily available and then the display looks bad. If you have a small form factor computer, chances are that you have an embedded graphics card.
