Review: Eeebuntu 3.0.1 NBR

Filed under
Ubuntu

Eeebuntu aims to provide a total 'out of the box' experience, and previous to the Version 3 release, Version 2 was highly regarded for this very fact. As soon as Version 3 was released (well, actually 3.0.1) I upgraded and was more than happy with it. The performance with OpenGL (especially OpenArena) still didn't match the standard modified Xandros or eeeXubuntu though it was great to have the latest Ubuntu on the little bugger with everything working.

The .iso is slightly larger than a CD, which is annoying in that you have to waste a blank DVD. In my view if you have to use a DVD then include more packages (not installed, though installable off the DVD). Once burnt, I used my external slim Samsung USB DVD burner (phew!) and was presented with the usual options, including the ability to run it as a live DVD. With the standard 512MB of DDR2 the Live DVD is incredibly slow but if you're wanting to double check that wireless et al works.

Open source software holds many compelling advantages over proprietary software. Open source improves the quality of the code, keeps costs down, encourages innovation and collaboration, combined with superior security, freedom, flexibility, interoperability, business agility, and much more.
