"I'll cover the interface of Ubuntu Netbook Edition in the Desktop section of the review.

"Note that in this release you can switch from the netbook interface to a regular GNOME desktop interface. See the booting and login section for details and screenshots.

"As I noted in a prior review, the removal of GIMP may rub some people the wrong way. Not to worry though, it's still available in the Software Center if you really want it. But the GIMP might be overkill for use on a netbook anyway. I'm not sure how many people would actually want to use it on that kind of computer.


"The inclusion of the Gwibber social media client gets a big thumbs up from me. You can easily connect to Facebook, Twitter, Digg, StatusNet, FriendFeed, Qaiku, and Identi.ca from Gwibber. The only major service lacking in Gwibber is LinkedIn, which I hope to see added in an update at some point. LinkedIn is an important tool for many people, so it's worth including in Gwibber."
