Ubuntu on WindowsXP Mini 9 - 09-28-2008, 09:27 PM
I didn't want to wait for an extra three weeks to get my mini 9. So ordered XP edition, 16 GB SSD, 1.3 Camera, Bluetooth, and 512 MB (ordered a 2GB stick too, although dell insisted 1 GB was max.) Hated to send the wrong message that XP was acceptable, but was impatient... lets just say XP had a limited lifespan ... gone that same night mini 9 arrived.
Ubuntu 8.04.1 installed. See these two articles for installation info ...

Only two issues, have not tried webcam. Bluetooth not working tried mouse and wiimote. Other than that been using it 2-4 hours a day for last week. Strange keyboard is okay. Dislike that the space key needs to be hit on center to register.
