Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 on my Dell Mini 10V

Wednesday, 9 December 2009

I have belatedly installed the upgrade to the first release of Ubuntu NBR on my Dell Mini 10V and it is a major hit. It is more attractive, a bit like the way a Mac is more attractive than a PC. It installed the new Google Chrome beta with a single click of the .deb file just like Windows does with an .msi file (I am writing this in Chrome on my 10V). It is faster to connect the wifi. I can browse my NAS through the file explorer. It has a super high WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor). I cannot find fault with it. It is as competent as Windows in every department with all the advantages of Linux, reliability, speed, compactness, cost.

I had been getting excited at the Chrome OS pre-previews, but I vote this new NBR as a winner not just in the mean time but perhaps for all time.
