Ubuntu 9.10 on EeePC 1008HA

with 3 comments

After reading lots of reviews, I went out and bought an EeePC 1008HA (‘Seashell’) netbook last weekend and installed the alpha Ubuntu 9.10 Netbook Remix… and everything just worked. Very impressed.

I haven’t decided whether I’ll stick with the Netbook Remix launcher interface, or just go for a cut-down desktop with Gnome-do launcher, but eitherway it’s lovely to use.

    • Yep, ethernet always, wireless works well now, although earlier in the Karmic cycle I had issues with the wireless after resuming from suspend and would need to reboot, but that seems to have been resolved now.
