2009 — Ubuntu on the NC10 Poll

Second poll results: poll began on 8th Jan 2008, closed on 31st Jan 2008

Are you happy with Ubuntu on the NC10?
Yes – Does exactly what I need 24% (84 votes)
Yes – But does not do everything 49% (170 votes)
No – Frustrating hardware issues 19% (65 votes)
No – Not my preferred OS 8% (26 votes)

Based on these results it seems that Ubuntu is a reasonably good OS for the NC10. I was hoping that future kernel updates would help to resolve some of the hardware issues. Unfortunately, comments on the forum suggest that this is not the case.

  1. Linux Mint (i.e. Ubuntu “as it should be”) IS my preferred distro, but (in order of gravity):
    – the problems with the sound
    – the wavy touchpad
    – the annoying wifi not recognized by default
    – the loss of the Fn+keys functionality
    – (first of all) the dangerous and unresolved eccessive load to the hard disk due to the too aggressive power saving policy
    convinced me to give OpenSuSE a try.
    I sincerely regret my dear Mint (Suse interface by far crashes much more often, and too many things have to be tweaked to initially put it in the configuration I need), but everything worked out of the box with the Gnome edition (somebody says except the camera, but I haven’t tried it yet).

    I suggest to try Suse on this pc to see everything work. But at the moment I still hope that in about six months the Ubuntu team solves all the problems and allow me to have my Mint back.

  2. I love ubuntu -especially on my recently purchased (!) NC10. I may not be the most adventurous computer user, but I have had no major problems whatsoever and am VERY VERY pleased. 🙂
