Ubuntu Netbook Edition
Ubuntu Netbook Edition (UNE), known as Ubuntu Netbook Remix prior to the release of 10.04, is a version of the Ubuntu Linux distribution that has been optimized to enable it to work better on netbooks and other devices with small screens or with the Intel Atom computer processor.
UNE has been available since Ubuntu release 8.04 ("Hardy Heron"). UNE is an optional preinstalled operating system (OS) on some netbooks such as Dell Inspiron Mini 10v and the Toshiba NB100, and also runs on popular models such as the Acer Aspire One and the Asus Eee PC.
Canonical, Ubuntu's developer, is collaborating with Moblin project to ensure optimization for lower hardware requirements and longer battery life.
