"One of the first things we have to establish before we get too
far in the process is the fact that there is a significant
difference in the two options when it comes to target audience. UNR
is targeted at Ubuntu users looking for a compact and small
display-friendly version of their favorite distribution. It brings
the majority of the applications found in the desktop distribution
along with a few user interface (UI) tweaks to make it a little
easier to do what you need to do.
"Moblin's stated goals include such things as minimal boot time,
high productivity centered around social networking tools like
twitter, last.fm and all the popular chat services. It also uses a
completely different desktop approach using what they call zones.
The idea behind this concept is to group activities into zones for
quick access and context switching. With this context we'll proceed
with our investigation.
"One of the best features added to Ubuntu 9.04 for netbook
owners is the USB Start Disk creator tool. This makes it drop dead
simple to create a bootable USB disk from any number of different
distribution formats including IMG, ISO and others. You'll find the
program under the System Administration tab from the applications
menu on any Ubuntu distribution after 9.04."
