Many users get annoyed by everyday troubles that still affect Windows systems. Whether it is a failing driver, problems caused by poorly written applications or a virus infection, any consumer type version of Windows can be considered more susceptible to problems than a decent Linux distribution. So why not use Linux instead?
Unlike Windows, most Linux distributions have a very modular structure, which means that you can choose to install a very slim basic system and a few, specialized modules only. As a result, a minimum installation does not require more than a few hundred megabytes.
This enables a pretty interesting application model: How about storing your operating system, including some applications, on a highly mobile device? This is exactly what the Ubuntu H2 was designed for.
