Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook Remix

Posted in Business Software, Development Software, Linux, Site News, Software Companies

Netbook demands are on the rise over the last few months. It all started with the introduction of Asus Eee PC notebook, and suddenly all other big companies follow suits to create their own version of Netbook. As you would probably realise that in most of these netbooks, the default operating system (OS) is normally Microsoft Windows XP. What about other OS platform?

Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04 now offers Netbook users the support to install the latest version of Ubuntu on their lightweight device. Ubuntu developers have tested several popular netbooks in the market and separated them according to 3 Tiers:

Tier 1 Netbooks are systems that fully support the deployment of Ubuntu on their netbook. These are:

1. Acer Aspire One
2. Asus Eee 1000
3. Asus Eee 900a
4. Asus Eee 901
5. Dell Mini 9
6. Lenovo S10
7. Medion Akoya E1210
8. MSI Wind U100

Tier 2 Netbooks are those that work somewhat, but have problems that may interfere with typical activities at the moment, or many smaller issues.

1. Asus Eee900
2. Asus Eee 701-SD / 702
3. Axioo CMPC
4. HP Mini 1000
5. Samsung NC10
6. Toshiba NB100

Lastly, Tier 3 Netbooks are those that are not supported by Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook Remix. We have identified one, and that is

HP 2133 Mininote

Moving forward, I hope that these will help you identify which Netbooks that you will want to purchase from the market, if you are someone who is a Linux user.
