Hi there everyone,
I have been a Linux user for some time now, I've move back and forward between distros and have tried out many of them.
My desktop is currently tri booting WinXP, Win7 & Ubuntu 10.04, the only reason I have Windows running is Adobe CS4, I've toyed with open source options, but they just don't deliver on a professinal level.
Early the year I bought yself a Samsung N110, an I have completely fallen in love with the idea of Netbooks, and this one is one of the best examples I have come across.
WinXP got taken off very quickly, and I installed Ubuntu Netbok Remix, which was fine, just felt a little too safe. I like tweaking now and again on my system. So I tried a few other netbook specific distros, currently using Jolicloud, which in my personal opinion is better than UNR. But still I want something more geek-friendly
I do like the alternative GUI in the netbook versions of Linux, but do feel a little trapped now and again.
So what should I do? Opt for a system like Gentoo and build it from the ground up the way I want it?
Play it a bit safer and install the normal Ubuntu on it, then just tweak the UI to work better with the netbook? Also had a look at MEPIS.
Any thoughts on the subject would be appreciated.
