Ubuntu Linux Netbook Edition 10.04 (Lucid Lynx)

I’ve been reviewing various Ubuntu derivatives and this week I thought it would be fun to take a look at the netbook version of Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Netbook Edition used to be called Ubuntu Netbook Remix, but Canonical changed the name once this distro became an official edition of Ubuntu.

What’s New In This Release
Much of the new stuff included in Ubuntu 10.04 is also included the Netbook Edition. Here’s a sample of what you’ll find:

GNOME 2.3
Gwibber Social Media Client
F-Spot replaces GIMP
Ubuntu One music store available in Rhythmbox
Ubuntu One now has bookmark sharing and contacts
Two new themes: Ambiance and Radiance
New wallpaper
Ubuntu Software Center 2.0
Linux Kernel 2.6.32

I’ll cover the interface of Ubuntu Netbook Edition in the Desktop section of the review.

Note that in this release you can switch from the netbook interface to a regular GNOME desktop interface. See the booting and login section for details and screenshots.
