Exclamation is there a linux distribution for intel atom cpu n270 archintecture?

Greetings. I want to install the ubuntu 9.04 version called Netbook-Remix to my new HP mini, wich came with windows vista.

Besides changing the kernel of the software I would like to know if there are alternatives, or if a new linux version is about to be available.

Ubuntu -9.04 will work fine on that.

Try Fedora-11 or try Vector Linux for great speed.

The Atom is just a low-wattage i686 chip; it is well supported by the Linux kernel, so you should be able to use any Linux distro you want (including Ubuntu 9.04). If you are not sure, boot with the option to "try Ubuntu with no change to your computer" and test it for a while. Good luck!
