Eeebuntu 8.10 has been released. Eeebuntu is a custom version of Ubuntu Linux that supports all drivers for most Eee PC models out of the box.
There are 3 editions of Eeebuntu, the standard edition, the NBR edition & Based.
This edition includes a full Ubuntu desktop & all the applications that come with the OS including OpenOffice, Firefox & Pidgin.
This is basically the same as the standard edition, but it uses the Ubuntu Netbook Remix interface. This interface is designed to make it easier to find & launch programs on Eee PCs with low resolution displays.
This is a stripped down version of Ubuntu. This edition saves a lot of disk space & has all the basic system files, but doesn’t have any unecessary applications preloaded. You can always install applications afterwards if you need them.
