Ubuntu 12.04 LTS for Netbook

For long time I have been a Ubuntu user and almost all my time I used Ubuntu in my daily activities for computing.

I like Ubuntu LTS version begin from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and now I use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Because for me Ubuntu LTS is more stable and it is supported for long time - 5 years for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

Ubuntu 12.04 is good for Netbook

I download Ubuntu 12.04 and install it in my Netbook Acer Aspire One 1 G of RAM, Processor 1.66 GHz, I install Ubuntu 12.04 from USB drive and just about some minutes to complete (it really fast).

Ubuntu 12.04 is saving power on my Netbook. It means getting a longer battery life on my Netbook. In my Netbook ubuntu 12.04 is longer life than Ubuntu 10.04 and my Netbook life almost same when I use Windows 7 in battery life. That is why I love Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

Ubuntu 12.04 also fast in my Netbook and I can run all my job from blogging, watching movies, doing graphic with gimp and Inkscape, Office with LibreOffice etc.

With Unity as default Desktop Environment (DE) make Ubuntu 12.04 is good for Desktop PC, Laptop and Netbook so we do not need Ubuntu Netbook Remix any more.

And personally I like Unity interfaces because besides its look modern Unity also easier to use and faster.

I like default interfaces in Ubuntu 12.04 like themes etc, because for me the default setting is the best for user that the Developer design. But if we don't like the default, we are free to customise the appearance as we want. We can make Ubuntu looks like Mac OS etc.

What do you like from Ubuntu 12.04?

  2. Hi, blog is alright, but a little more effort on the quality side would be great. Try to use grammatically standard english.

  3. I have an Asus EeePC 1000 netbook and would like to install ubuntu 12.04 on it. Can anyone direct me to a step by step guide for doing this. I will need to create a bootable install on usb pen drive. I've downloaded the iso file, just not sure what to do next. Any help much appreciated.

    1. The easiest way is to create a live usb by using unetbootin. Believe me that i tried many other ways. None worked for me. Unetbootin worked on the first try. Good luck.
