Ubuntu 10.04 netbook remix Cont’d

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 Netbook Remix

April 28, 2010 2 comments

Let me put it this way – Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix is AWESOME!

The key is the user interface. It is a really fresh take on an old problem and works great. I have it running on a desktop and so far do not see any reason why it should be limited to just use on netbooks. The user interface state transitions are smooth and fast.

The default installation came with kernel version 2.6.31.21. It didn’t install some packages that we take for granted such as gcc but they were a snap to put in. I added some trypical apps – gimp, java, eclipse and they all work Great.

here is a quick screenshot:
