Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Edition

Posted in install, netbooks with tags , on November 2, 2010 by jb

I’m now using Maverick Meerkat, which has the new Unity interface. Works reasonably well on my old NC10, although there is a bit of lag when using the ‘launcher bar’ on the left. Battery life is OK. Overall, I think it is a significant increment over previous Ubuntu versions (especially enjoying the Exposé window management feature)… Thanks to Ubuntu the NC10 is still a useful machine.

No problems with the upgrade process from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS using Update Manager:

System/Administration/Update Manager. Click the Check button to check for new updates. If there are any updates to install, use the Install Updates button to install them, and press Check again after the process is finished. (Make sure the ‘Normal Releases’ option is selected in the menu accessed by clicking the “Settings…” button on the Update Manager interface).

I’m still using Bios: 11CA available from the Samsung Website
