Ubuntu Netbook Remix is an official distribution of Ubuntu for netbooks, optimized for use with the Intel Atom processor.[1] It is based on the standard (full version e.g. Ubuntu 8.10) Ubuntu Desktop distribution, but adds a window picker and an application launcher optimized for netbooks.[2] Canonical, the company that backs Ubuntu, is collaborating with Moblin project to ensure optimization for lower hardware requirements and higher battery life.[3] Ubuntu Netbook Remix will be available to the public, with optional audio and video decoders for OEMs.[4] The first devices using Netbook Remix were scheduled to be released in late 2008. Development version of Ubuntu Netbook Remix is available at Launchpad as Personal Package Archive for the standard Ubuntu Desktop 8.04 and 8.10 versions.
