11.04 on the Samsung NC10

I have recently upgraded to 11.04 from the 10.10 Netbook Edition. I clicked the distribution upgrade button located on the Update Manager and it installed without any problems.

The Unity interface is now the default selection so there is no longer a ‘Netbook Edition’. The launcher bar is greatly improved; it is no longer sluggish. It also auto-hides when not in use allowing greater screen real estate, which is at a premium on the NC10.

Although the NC10 is an old machine now, it is still proving to be useful. Ubuntu keeps getting better and the NC10 still meets the minimum system requirements.

Iā€™m using Bios: 11CA available from the Samsung Website.
