Having gone to an Ubuntu event last week, I gave Ubuntu Netbook Remix a shot, only to find it was having difficulty with the unusual 720p resolution of the Booklet 3G. I know it's not that difficult to configure such things on Linux, but I don't care — right now I'm in search of the easiest-to-use, most netbook-friendly distro out there."
