“Ubuntu on the EeePC” : OpenWeek Presentation Went Well

By | 2008/05/01

I wanted to throw out a quick thank-you to all those that attended my OpenWeek Presentation today.  I think things went really well and had some great questions and suggestions from those in attendance.  If you missed the presentation and would like to catch up on the logs you can find them here.

It also appears that we’ve formed a loose new team/group, dedicated to advancement of Ubuntu support on the EeePC.  If you’d like to participate please drop me a note (see my contact page) or drop by the #ubuntu-eeepc irc channel for discussion.  Our goal is to have 100% support out-of-the-box by Ubuntu 8.10 “Intrepid”.  Think we can do it? 🙂

    Damnit! I was meaning to see this… On a side note I think you guys can do it simply because it’s doable now – I have Xubuntu on my EeePC and my only issue is the BIOS’s fondness of disabling my Wifi/Webcam.

    @Stefan – the boot speed is something we’re working on and we’re also working on getting everyone to work together. It is Linux, I guess, but that doesn’t mean we can’t try to improve it.

    By 8.10 it’ll be all set. No worries 😉

    Can this be run as a live-boot from USB Jump Drive?
