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.

904-netbook-remix

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.

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.

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.
