"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."
