Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04

The nice thing about my netbook is that I have no hesitation to wipe it clean and install a new OS on it. Which is what I did today after I downloaded Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04.

It was released today and the instructions for installing off of a USB stick were very clear. It’s a very slick package and for what I am doing with Firefox and Gnome Terminal it’s more than enough. The menu system is replaced with a compatible front end that lets you create a favorites page and launch apps from there. And unlike the recently talked about”floats like a lead baloon” Windows 7 Starter, I can easily run more than three apps at a time.

I’m writing this on my netbook and I still need to optimize the environment for speed. But so far so good.

  1. Yep. Just create a Live USB of Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04 and reboot.

    Boot off of the USB stick and select Live CD. That will let you try it without installing it. I tried it that way to make sure the wifi drivers work.

    I was using the UNR on my Acer Aspire One (8GB SSD version) via the USB stick. However, I decided the USB stick was not for me.. So, I installed it instead :). VERY happy since the XP home that was installed was very sluggish. A huge thank you to the Ubuntu folks for this remix.

  3. I’m now running UNR 9.04 on my Acer Aspire One netbook. It works really well and the only thing problem I am having is that I need to upgrade to a 6 cell battery pack.

    2 hours with the 3 cell is not enough.
