Looking for something different, I recently downloaded and installed Ubuntu on my netbook. I have been a LOYAL Sabayon Linux user for many years now. I still use Sabayon, but wanted to learn another distribution. Since Ubuntu seems to be a popular distribution, I thought I would give it a try.

I first downloaded the Ubuntu netbook remix, but I hated the interface. Then, I downloaded and installed the standard desktop edition (10.04). On my Hannspree Hanns Note Netbook, installation worked like a champ. No issues, wireless and bluetooth worked out of the box. 10.04 is fast and responsive. Webcam and hotkeys worked too.

Linux basic commands are all the same, but there are some differences between Sabayon and Ubuntu. I’m working on getting used to the new commands like apt-get.
