Canonical won’t be ready to ship its custom version of Ubuntu for low-cost ultraportable laptops until the fall, but that’s not stopping the group from showing off an early version of Ubuntu Netbook Remix at Computex.
Engadget got their hands on a few screenshots, and to be perfectly honest, it looks pretty much like Ubuntu with a big ole launcher program that gives you easy access to your most frequently used programs. This sort of launcher certainly comes in handy on devices with small screens.
Under the hoot, UNR will also use Moblin technologies designed for the Intel Atom CPU, which should help the operating system’s performance when running on devices with the low powe processor.
