Ubuntu UMPC - 01-30-2009, 07:37 PM
I have been using Ubuntu UMPC (8.10) and I am very satisfied so far. It's pretty zippy and responsive and boot time wasn't significantly higher than the Dell one. The main reason I switched is that my SSD died and I figured I might as well try a newer distribution since I had to reinstall everything anyways.
I still have the Dell Ubuntu on a separate partition but I haven't used it since I started with UMPC.
You can download the UMPC image: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/intrepid/release/
Let me know if anyone else is using this version. Everything pretty much worked out of the box except for sound. I followed instructions for enabling the sound and adding the bluetooth/wifi airport manager from: http://www.ubuntumini.com/
