Ubuntu announces ultra-portable Remix

By   |  June 4, 2008

We previously wrote about plans for a customised version of Ubuntu designed for the new wave of ultra-portable, flash-based “netbook” computers. Yesterday Ubuntu announced plans to show off Ubuntu Remix this week at the Computex trade show in Taiwan. Ubuntu Remix is built to be be compatible with the low-power Atom processor from Intel, a miniaturised processor built for smaller notebook chassis. Asus, for example, will use the Intel Atom processor in its upcoming EEE PCs.

Remix is based on the standard Ubuntu Desktop Edition but with a launcher that allows users to get on-line more quickly and have faster access to their favourite applications.

Canonical, Ubuntu sponsor, says that it is working with Intel as well as other hardware manufacturers to certify Remix for these new platforms.

Remix will reportedly not be available for download as with the standard Ubuntu desktop but will be made available directly to netbook makers.

    The remix idea is great. Be *very* careful of package dependencies. One mono-craving package, regardless of the bling, means several hundred megabytes of MS-license-dependent supporting libraries and modules. Novell has signed a contract with MS not only acknowledging MS’ ownership of these packages, but also *paying* for their use.

    So lightweight subnotebooks need not just light weight software but also light weight licensing: no mono infections. f-spot has got to go. Put some effort into making digkam better instead and avoid increasing the system footprint and licensing liabilities.

    The first thing I do upon installing a desktop version of Ubuntu is purge f-spot and install Digikam
