Review – Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix

Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu Netbook Remix, or UNR, sports the same purple theme that the Gnome Ubuntu release has. There is only a toolbar at the top, and then the Netbook Interface.

Your Favorite Applications are readily available, and the shortcuts to the left of the screen are pretty self explanatory. A very pretty and user friendly interface.

That Interface

The UNR interface is optimized for touch devices. It comes across as rather clunky, but I think it serves it’s purpose well. The menu to the left might be a little small for the fat fingered among us, but the icons themselves are nicely sized and easy to interpret.

The intention is only to lift the date if something really critical pops up that is not possible to handle as an errata, or if we end up technically unable to release that weekend. Please keep in mind that we intend to have a quiet period from Saturday the 18th of April. Bug fixes must be *in Jessie* before then. Read more
