10 Netbook-oriented Linux Distributions... and Counting

Dec 09, 2009, 22:02 (0 Talkback[s])

"For those of you who are interested, I've compiled a list of well-known, netbook-oriented Linux distributions. If you have something to add, please do so via comment later on. So here's the list already:

"Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR)
Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR) is a Canonical-sponsored netbook-optimized Linux distribution that is (of course) based on Ubuntu. It has been available since Ubuntu 8.04 "Hardy Heron". UNR is an optional preinstalled operating system (OS) on some netbooks such as Dell Inspiron Mini 10v and the Toshiba NB100, and also runs on popular models such as the Acer Aspire One and the ASUS Eee PC. Canonical has collaborated with Intel and is working with a number of OEM's to deliver Ubuntu on netbooks in retail. All of the initial Ubuntu Netbook remixes combine optimizations from the Moblin project for Intel Atom processors."
