Ubuntu Netbook Remix – User Interface Pro/Am Opinions

“The UNR desktop is divided into three sections. The left
section contains what is essentially the Gnome “Applications” and
“System” menus, spread out so that they are immediately visible.
For new users, this makes it much more obvious where things are
located, and on the small screens of the netbook systems that UNR
is intended for, it makes the entire menu system more
readable.”

“The center section of the desktop shows the contents of
whatever menu section is selected. Initially after boot or login,
that is a new section called “Favorites”, which is roughly
equivalent to launchers on the Gnome panel. By default this
contains obvious things like Firefox, Evolution, Cheese, Pidgin and
of course Help.”
