My AcerOne and ubuntu remix 9.10

In 2008 I bought an Acer one with linux. The distro was linpus (a kind of Fedora simplified distro). I like the look and feel of the AcerOne but I could feel the limitation of the system early, so I began to hack linpus to customize the system.

After a while I stopped to play with the acerOne, too painful to use. The weakness of the system where :

1. The battery was too weak

2. The sound is not good enough.

3. Linpus is perfect for a end-user use but too tight for a kind of hacker like me.

At the end of 2009 I resinstalled the AcerOne with Ubuntu Remix, and what a surprise ! this os really rocks ! it is stable and faster than the original linpus. I can do anything and the interface is very easy to use ! With this system I can learn softly to become an ubuntu fan. I also replaced the original battery and now I can use my netbook for almost 10 hours ! this is pretty useful.

Two facts :

1. With a good battery, netbook are very perfect tools.

2. Ubuntu remix is one of the best os for netbook for the moment. I haven’t use Windows 7 on a netbook, but I’m pretty sure they only take the standard OS on the netbook, ubunut remix is an optimized OS for the netbook and this is the difference.

Tell me about your experiences ! and greetings.
